    I got some nice shells off Ebay for my hermies, unfortunately these shells are too small. :-( Oops. 2, possibly 3 nice Turbo Petholatus shells, approx. 2 inches wide, with approx 1 inch openings. I put a golf ball in one pic for scale. I say "possibly 3" because I'm waiting to see if Arthur wants one, but I'll probably throw in the third as well. It is about the same size as the other two. I will mail these shells for free anywhere in the US, although I would love to have a decent shell with about a 1.5 inch O-shaped opening if you have an extra lying around you want to trade. PM me. :)

    I'd love to take them off your hands, do I just PM you my address?

    I might also have some shells lying around, if you want to trade.

    :D

    Hmm... I have some shells. I'll go take a look at the openings. My crabs are not big fans of the shells in the first picture though. They don't like them much.

    I currently have 2 shells of 1/2 inch opening, I'd feel better if we traded, personally.

    I guess we can just swap addresses if that sounds fine, I'd split the shells if Coco still wants one:)

    Those shells are great for my crabs! I don't have any 1.5 opening shells, though. :( Could I pay for them, then? Or Chase could take them all! I don't mind. :)

    True, although the picky never got much, in friends-sake.

    I don't need any. My crabs are too big. The smallest one has a 1.5+ shell opening. SOmetimes I wish I had really small ones.

    Chase just go ahead and PM me your address and I'll stick the shells in the mail on Tuesday (gotta go to the post office on Tuesday anyway). My crabs are all way too big for these shells. I would save one for my niece's hermie to grow into but I think it won't grow into it for awhile and right now I think it's in a painted shell. :rolleyes: I am not real inclined right now to argue with a 5 year old about why the "boring" natural shell is better (for the crab) than the "cool" painted one, that'll be a losing battle. But I digress. :) I'd just be happy to know that somebody's hermies have nice new shells.
