Isopods are detritivores (consumers of dead organic material), and are an important part of most ecosystems they are a part of. In nature, the species of Isopods we care for are typically found in leaf litter, under wood & rocks, and in other moist areas. The word Isopod is derived from Greek meaning "Equal Foot", since they have an equal number of feet on each side of their body. Isopods belong to the subphylum of Crustacea (Crustaceans), which makes them more closely related to Lobsters & Crabs than Insects. The vast majority of Isopods found in this hobby seem to belong to the terrestrial suborder Oniscidea which contains over 5000 known species.
