Website for scorpion care?

Ok so basically, my brother had been begging for a scorpion for years, and my grandma saw one while shopping for my uncle who as a bazillion pets. The adults of the house talked it over and we got the scorpion. Everything’s been fine and the research/prep phase went well, there have been no problems...

Molter under bowl??

Hi. So one day, my crab went missing but there were absolutely no signs he escaped, so me andmy sister thought he may be molting, especially since there was a space where a crab clearly burrowed down into next to a water bowl that didn’t match those left behind by the non-missing crab, who loves to ...

Mosquito in Crabitat

So, as you can probably tell from the topic title, there’s a mosquito in our crabitat. I’m afraid to open the crabitat to kill the mosquito in case it escapes because my dad said we can’t kill it fast enough and it would just fly out, and I’m hesitant to change the water for the same reason. Is the ...

Re: Escaped Hermit Info. Gathered from other Posts.

One time, I could not find my hermie anywhere in the two rooms closest, and didn’t think he would’ve made it all the way out to the third room after just one night, but we got desperate and what do you know, he was under a box there.

Re: Hole in Shell

I already took it out, originally to boil because we hadn’t done that for a while, and when I was doing a quick pre-rinse, I noticed the hole, and since it was small, I thought it might not affect Slither. Thanks for your advice! But what should I do with the shell now that it is no longer good for ...

Hole in Shell

Our medium hermie, Slither has a shell with a hole in the back of it. It is a pretty small whole, only about 1/4 inch wide. How urgent is it that we get it replaced? Can we continue to provide it to the hermie temporarily, or do we keep it out of the tank so Slither has to use his other shell? Would...

Re: My crab is not moving in his shell.

There is almost nothing a vet can do for a hermit crab and most of them aren't even trained or have any actual knowledge of how to care for ceonobita species. Hi I am new to this forum. I bought 2 hermit crabs from Ocean City ( not the best place). I am concerned about my one crab My crab had not m...

Re: Naked crab

Hi, Maybe you know his already and uncurling ab was what seemed best at the time, but touching a hermit crab’s body will be excruciating for the hermie no matter how gentle you are. Maybe your hermie’s shell had something inside, because hermit crabs will leave shells if they become uncomfortable a...

Re: Organizing foods?

I have a little baggy of hermit crab food and my uncle who has many pets gave me a bowl of fish flakes when I got my gold fish, I keep them right by the pets they are for. When feeding my hermies, I change the food base each week. I throw out anything they didn’t eat, rinse the bowl, and fill it 3/...

I am concerned about my one crab My crab had not moved for days from inside the wood piece that we put in his cage. He is in his shell. Everything I see about molting talks about a crab outside of his shell. H...
