Armadillidium gestroi establish themselves gradually within a vivarium, serving as diligent cleaners and a nutritious calcium source. Highly valued in the isopod community for their substantial size (some exceeding 2cm) and distinctive yellow markings, they originate from France. These isopods prefer hiding beneath leaf litter, bark slabs, and substrate. While adults are large and prized for their ornate spotted appearance, juveniles are consumed by various amphibians, invertebrates, and reptiles. Larger amphibians and reptiles may also prey upon adults, except for poison dart frogs. Known for their robust, calcified exoskeleton, Armadillidium gestroi are cherished for their rarity and aesthetic appeal, typically kept as pets or for trading among isopod enthusiasts rather than with predators.
