Hermit wheel!

Post by aslansgirl89 » Fri Nov 01, 2019 9:49 pm

Shallan found the running wheel tonight that I put in the tank a few weeks ago! I think that I may have scared her taking a picture but I was so happy that I had to share! ImageImage

Yay! The only thing I would point out is your particular wheel has that "bar" in front. That could be a hazard when the crabs are hanging on the edge. It could hurt their legs. See how my crab is doing that?Image

Ok, is the one shown a diy or a different type of wheel?

Looking at the base, it looks like a store bought one, but I could be wrong.

Both store brought, but different brands (types).

It's a Kaytee Comfort Exercise Wheel. With added craft mesh for when their legs spread out.
