Re: Nighttime digging!

Many of us use a mixture. 5 parts of play sand (available in big 50 pound bags cheap at hardware stores) with 1 part moistened EE. It hold the shape well, helps with humidity, and is much cheaper than using all EE. Unless there is a rare emergency like a flood or bacterial bloom, you also don't nee...

Re: Nighttime digging!

Maggie is a three toed box turtle rescue.

Yes, I am using all eco earth. Could I just use playground sand?

Nighttime digging!

Oh my goodness! I have not seen my crabs up in a while but I know that they are active when I am not looking because they keep burying their water dishes! I am not sure how they do this but I know they are doing it at night because I fill up the water dishes before bed and every morning I come in to...

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 because...

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! Image

Popcorn fanatics!

My crabbies are popcorn fanatics! I have one crab that is always hiding under the substrate except for possibly at night when I don't see him and tonight I put some popcorn in and turned the lights off. I just went back in to see if they had done anything with it and found that my shy guy had almost...

Re: Hanging out

Of course! One of mine is pretty friendly and is basically just like, "Oh hey! How's it going?!" and goes on with her business but the other one flips himself backwards in order to get away from me and I can almost imagine him yelling, "The sky is falling! The sky is falling!" I pick up and hold the...

How hot is too hot?

Just a quick question here about whether hermit crabs can get too hot? I live in an area that has a heat index warning tomorrow with an actual temperature of 99 and heat indexes of over 110 so my question is, tonight my power went out because of a thunderstorm and I am wondering if the hermit crabs ...

Climber crab!

This is Shallan and she would rather hang upside down than just about anything else! She loves crawling from finger to finger but she is so gentle and never pinches while climbing. She just uses her legs! She also apparently likes to cuddle with my hair and share secrets in my ear! She is currently ...

Re: 3 different crabs.

I kind of wish my crabs would clam up like that when I bother them. I have a hard time measuring them for new shells because when I pick them up they won't stay in they're shells, they come out and start grabbing everything. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk Yup! Both of my crabbies try to grab ...

Gotta love it when a freshly moulted crabby climbs on your hands and arms and leaves their impression behind! Lol! Image
