They all seem to have the same pattering but there is a fair bit of color variation and a large population where i found them. I found them in my tortoise’s pen outside underneath some hay. Any species suggestion would be helpful. Thanks in advance
     
  2. Here’s some hopefully better ones. Thankss

    They are still fairly small in the pictures, but from what I can tell, they are probably an Armadillidium species.

  4. Yea i got that they’re an armadillidium species but i cant find anything accurate because they’re so small and i cant really find any bigger with the same pattern and colors

    Ah, I see. It is quite likely that they are A. vulgare. They often have patterns/colors that the subsequently lose as they mature.
