Re: What to ask for my birthday (crab stuff)

I’m also in NC! Mine absolutely love their wheel...not the saucer kind though. I added mesh to a hamster wheel after seeing lots of people here do it and there is always a crab or two playing on it. It’s my favorite thing to watch them do!

Re: Cork Board background - climbable?

I kinda think they could. They always surprise me with their climbing skills. Would be fun to watch them try anyway! Lol. Check out coconut climbing walls too...mine love theirs! https://www.petsmart.com/reptile/habitats-and-decor/habitat-decor/thrive-natural-coconut-fiber-climbing-background-529078...

Re: worried new owner!

Welcome!! There’s a lot of great people here with lots of info. [emoji4] Just wanted to mention one important thing...to never dig them up. You would only do this in an emergency situation with a flood or bacterial bloom. I say this in case you’re worried and want to check on them when they dig down...

Re: Post your stories and pics of crabs in wheels here!

I love watching them on the wheel! They go at it for hours, lol. Here’s a few screen shots from night vision videos... https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210409/2aaa3469239aa3a0a562dd86a3ce0b93.jpg This is Sandy spinning Hermione around from her back, on the sub...it seems so intentional. https://up...

Re: Bought on vacation and now learning the ropes

Take it out, quick! Lol. I remember when one of mine switched from her painted shell and I just kept watching, fascinated...I had never seen that before. And then, before I knew it, she was changing back into her painted one! It, of course, took her another few weeks to change out of it again, littl...

Re: Adopting Crabs

Just a thought...if you get a different size hermit crab, they’d be less inclined to fight over the same resources. [emoji2370][emoji4]

Re: I got my hermies today!

Welcome to the HCA...great people here and lots of good info! Sadly, some of the info taught in pet stores isn’t the best for our little crabby creatures...same with products labeled specifically for hermits. It’s strange really. You should check out the care sheets on here when you have some time… ...

Re: Bought on vacation and now learning the ropes

Welcome!! You’re getting great advice so far, but I just wanted to throw in a reminder to be sure your substrate is moistened to sandcastle-like consistency so that their tunnels/caves will hold when they go digging! Also, I feel like I’ve read somewhere not to use distilled water bc it doesn’t have...
