This is where you discuss the conditions of your crabitat -- temperature, humidity, substrate, decorating, etc.

I've seen pics of yhr lighter colored and wondered what they were made of. I like the color but it may get dirty quickly with the substrate.

I've made mine of all natural jute chord, similar to hemp but not as stiff. Just have to make sure it has not been treated with any chemicals.

I actually have those! I’ve only used the bridge and ladder...to me, they are a bit flimsy but my crabs love it and do fine on it. I have it attached with suction cups along the back wall ...one end tied to a rock structure and the other attached to a reptile hammock. I can take a pic to give you a better idea of what it looks like. I also ordered a small hemp climbing wall from a shop on Etsy. Haven’t seen any crabs on it yet, but it’s new.
