Re: What are your crabs up to?

I have 1 upside down on the mesh lid right now. Is it ok to leave hime there? Your crab is probably down by now. They usually climb down after a while and can hang on pretty tight to mesh and nets so not likely to fall. If you are afraid of escape you can try to gently get him down if he does it ag...

Re: More hermie wheel fun & a crab fight

You've got to wonder when you see behaviors like that of Brutus if these animals are capable of feeling the effects of the trauma that they must have suffered being captured from the wild and possibly held in poor conditions before being sold. Not denegrating the people who now own the crabs becaus...

Re: What are your crabs up to?

Shallan is enjoying climbing on the new toys that I made for her from some materials my husband brought home from work specifically for the crabs! They aren't spoiled or anything! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190905/0c6529e0fb7e0133b5a25a6bfe9586e9.jpg Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk Wow...

Re: More hermie wheel fun & a crab fight

:) I just bought a comfort wheel and it's on the way. Thank you! More hermie wheel videos coming up...just on a temporary pause right now :thumbright: I'm not sure how to make the videos where they aren't downloads in order to watch them. I have an Ipad, Iphone and HP laptop, any tips will be great...

Re: More hermie wheel fun & a crab fight

I'm sorry, but I suppose that I must be the bad person here and warn you that these kind of wheels are very dangerous. Hermit crab legs can get caught in-between the bar that holds the wheel when more than one crab gets on it. I recommend the plastic one sided entry ones (kaytee silent spinner or t...

Re: More hermie wheel fun & a crab fight

I love your videos, thank you for sharing more of them. Brutus is a little stinker! Lol! I love his little personality, he has a lot of spunk. I can’t get over how protective of the shells he is, it’s just too cute! I know it must be hard for you to deal with at times but he is too cute! I really t...

Re: More hermie wheel fun & a crab fight

Your videos are so cute! Maybe someday Brutus can find a friend he gets along with! Poor guy, wonder why he guards everything so crazy! It’s funny but I can see how disruptive it would be to a colony if even just one acts like that all the time. Good call on his own little crabby haven! Also, I abs...

Re: Hermit crabs have fun too

I just want to mention that this wheel is not crab safe. The issue is not the metal. The issue becomes two things. Number one - the holes. Number two the bars that hold the wheel. When a crab is walking a wheel and another crab grabs the bar a leg can get lost by being broken off. You are better to...

Re: What are your crabs up to?

You have to watch to the end. Here's the dialogue: "Here, let me help. I've got you.... I've got you... let go, I have you.... hmmm... maybe if I get on the other side, hold on, uhhh... that's not gonna work. Just let go. I have you." "I thought you had me!!!" https://youtu.be/ytFlXhu0Pkg Oh my gos...
