I don't feed that kind to anything. My toy isopod sits on my cluttered desk.

I use lots of dwarf isopods for small terrestrial salamander food. I use larger isopods for larger terrestrial salamander food. I sometimes use them for aquatic salamander food. Lots of people use isopods for natural "biosubstrate" to keep terrariums clean.

Wait, is that real? It almost looks fake.....

I am not sure I would want to feed any of my amphibians these guys, they are too beautiful! I'll stick with the plain grey ones....

You had me fooled! Did it come in a Kinder egg type thing? I got some years ago that had Axolotls in them.

Good one Michael. You had me fooled there for a second...then I saw how it looked a little rubbery, and not all of it's feet were touching the ground.

Do they make newt versions of those? It'd make a cool decoration in a amphibian room...

It came in pieces but not in an egg. I have some salamanders that came in choco eggs.
