how to breed zebra isopods
Isopoda is an order of crustaceans that includes woodlice and their relatives. Zebra Isopods live in the sea, in fresh water, or on land. All have rigid, segmented exoskeletons, two pairs of antennae, seven pairs of jointed limbs on the thorax, and five pairs of branching appendages on the abdoment that are used in respiration. Females brood their young in a pouch under their thorax.
Isopods have various feeding methods: some eat dead or decaying plant and animal matter, others are grazers, or filter feeders. A few are predators, and some are internal or external parasites, mostly of fish. Aquatic species mostly live on the seabed or bottom of freshwater bodies of water. But some taxa can swim for a short distance.
Zebra Isopods Description
Classified within the arthropods, isopods have a chitinous exoskeleton and jointed limbs. Isopods are typically flattened dorsoventrally (broader than they are deep). Although many species deviate from this rule. Particularly parasitic forms, and those living in the deep sea or in ground water habitats. Their color vary, from grey to white. Or in some cases red, green, or brown.
