Hermit Crab Habitat
This shows one side of the hermit crabitat. It has a sand bottom, a fake plant, a small salt water pool, and a large freshwater pool. Each pool has a sponge for two reasons. First, my crabs are very little and need something to help them get in and out of the pool so that they don't drown. Second, the natural humidity levels here in West Texas are very low and the sponges help keep the humidity in the right levels. There is also a pile of shells that are there for transfers and are largest hermit crab appears to be looking for a new shell though he was feeling a little camera shy.
