Laureola sp. Ivory Spiky

Laureola sp. “Ivory Spiky” is the earliest Vietnamese spiky isopod bred in captivity. It is commonly found in leaf litter and occasionally in foliage in the wild. This is an active species and they are commonly found roaming about.

A high moisture level of at least 80% is recommended with moderate ventilation. Some layers of leaf litter with ample vertical space between them will be ideal, giving them space to explore. Make sure that the leaves are not compacted. Mancae may hide in the moss initially before becoming more mobile.

“Ivory Spiky” can be quite prolific when conditions are right. However, many breeders have also reported that their colonies were doing well with new broods weekly before a sudden crash without a clue as to the reason.
