    Ha! It does look like a mutated snail! :D
    Like I said, I bough my hermies coconut climbing wall and so far, I haven't seen Shelle climb on it ONCE.
    At least it's good for keeping humidity, I'll give them credit.

    If you're talking about this one, I don't see anything wrong with it. My crabs couldn't care less about it, but it does keeps the humidity up.

    It should be fine, but I would keep an eye on it for mildew, especially the back of it. I remember some saying that the only problems they had with it was the mildew, and it wouldn't stay stuck to the tank after a while. :eek:

    i had this climbing thing and it works great but the velcro is really cheap so you should buy some extra velcro

    yeah, i concur. Expeically if you have a bigger tank than i (which you do). Get a couple strips of nice long velcro, and it should be all good =]

    If you guys think that's bad, you have not seen the FMR crab. I'll try and find a pic but it's just BAD! I had a climbing coco thing and my crabs just LOVED it! They ate it and climbed it and tore it and I ended up throwing it's remains out after a month. It had shrunk to about half the size!:eek:

    The climbing walls aren't harmful, since they're made out of coco fiber, but that's a really bad company!! Hemp nets are wayyy better, though!
