Did anyone ever hear of this???

like saying you don't need substrate? Really ridiculous! And putting them in a cage with wire? Metal is harmful to hermit crabs! Hello! Pet store person! Do some research before you bring a pet to your store! Obviously lying about 25 years! I doubt that she isn't lying about how old they are!

I finally got it done

congrats! My crabs will also be getting the bigger cage and more fancy things once i get back from my trip! The digital guage is a more accurate reading, so as you know the washcloth doesn't bring the humidity up to 90, but it keeps it up to above seventy for at least a couple of days. Yeah moss wou...

My crabs have been lethargic, are they getting ready to molt?

yes petco and petsmart should have them. And hermit crabs love all meat pretty equally, but they do love shrimp the most i think, because they find that and maybe even catch that in their wild habitat sometimes if it is close to shore when they mate at the beach. They don't catch pig or cow! Althoug...

crab and every creature galore day at widby island's beach

some of the crab's shells were way too small! They will probably molt soon! How do you molt in water? In other words how do tide pool hermit crabs molt?

My crabs have been lethargic, are they getting ready to molt?

so first of all i would like to say not to worry that your crabs are molting right now. If they had enough energy to run up to you. Next i would like to say that you need a second substrate, good job learning playsand over calcium sand, but you still need a second substrate, i reccomend eco earth, i...

and don't worry we released all of those creatures! We released them back in the same place! But that is the most real crabs and hermit crabs that i have ever seen! And there were hermit crab shells all over the beach so i read the sign saying one until august 1st and only took one of the million.

crab and every creature galore day at widby island's beach

today has been the best day in my long life! Went in the tide pools saw and caught 50 crabs, massive and tiny, yellow backed and everything! Some were spiders crabs, crabs whose legs represent those of a spider. Also we caught at least 500 hermit crabs in the tide pool, saw and caught shrimp, eels, ...

in the beginning

when i first got my crabitat set up i was so impressed with it, now i am like this is nothing! in the beginning i thought calcium sand was okay, it is now to be replaced with playsand. i also thought using a spritzer was a genius way to keep up humidity, now i have a system to keep up the good humid...
