Possible new hermit crab accessory??

Post by ciaraalston » Mon Nov 26, 2018 6:34 am

I saw this posted on Facebook and I'm having mixed feelings. It seems like it would be an awesome deal for a hermit crab hide... But I'm worried their legs will get stuck in the holes... What do y'all think?? Am I just too protective? Lol

That reminds me of something I saw at a local pet store here, it was a log hideaway with a wheel and a food bowl for hamsters. I can’t find it online to show you, I’ll have to go take a picture of it sometime. I think it would be ok, it doesn’t seem like it has any areas where they could get hurt, it looks like fun for them.

I agree. I think it’d be fine as long as there are no sharp edges. Cholla holes are larger than that.

I’m starting to make a bunch of stuff for my tank. Like American Crab Ninja Warrior fun.

Looks to me like crabby paradise! If you're concerned about their legs getting stuck I would put up some coco-mat over the holes. Maybe that would help. Otherwise looks like they'd have a lot of fun on it!

I'm still pretty new to this and I'm trying to learn all I can!

I'm a little late, but would this happen to be it?
