Armadillidum klugii

"clown roly poly"

Armadillidium klugii is part of a species complex once thought to be a single species.  A klugii entered the market as Armadillidium sp. "Montenegro" based on where they were collected but recently they have been definitively identified as being Armadillidium klugii scientifically.

This species featured a black shiny shell with a bright red-orange skirt and festive spotting with the ability to roll into a tight ball for defense when startled or threatened, earning them the nickname the "clown roly poly"
