Does this list get updated every so often or is more a matter of searching and reading other posts to find out additional items not on the list? I was searching on kale and pumpkin seeds around the forum and they appear to be safe, but they aren't on the safe list.

Just curious...I printed out the safe and unsafe lists and want to make sure I note these items on them. :D

The safe list comes from anothe website (Epicurean Hermit), so I'm not sure how frequently they update it. :dontknow: But yes, there are definitely a lot of foods that are safe that are not on the list! :wink: I tend to just stay away from the unsafe list. :)

Onion are also toxic to dogs, its up there with chocolate. Just dogs aren't too likely to run off and eat an onion so you don't hear about it much. So not surprising its unsafe for hermit crabs.

Do you know if Mimosa tree leaves or pods (the flowers are gone at this point) are safe?
I'm wondering about mimosa also.

So....I know cucumbers are safe....but what about pickles? Like dill or sweet, as long as some of the juice was washed off first, would pickles be safe? Just wondering! :)

I don't think pickles would be safe since there's so much salt and vinegar...
