That's the problem with African turbo shells. But, I love them anyways. They're so cute!

Those shells aren't common due to their weight. However for some crabs they do fancy them. You just have to take loads of pics when they do as it's not s common occurrence so enjoy it while you can.

You are right these shells are not that common because of their weight. But it's Beautiful. I think these shells originate in Africa :bigkiss:

We bought 2 for our crabbies and they never bothered with them at all. So now we have expensive decorative shells.

Same here - none of my crabbies have ever used them.
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com
