    Hi,
    my crabitat is a "exo terra" terrarium, 90cmX45cmX60cm.
    I use heat lamp and a small eatwave (exo terra) on one side of the terrarium.
    I have a temperature ranging from 25 to 30°C with a drop in temperature during the night, ranging from 20 to 23°C.
    I spray water regularly, so I have a relative humidity ranging from 60 to 80% depending on time of day.
    There is 10 to 15 cm of sand in the terrarium, covered in part of a small carpet of dead leaves. There is also plenty of hiding places, artificial plants and mangrove roots.
    I have two points of water, freshwater and saltwater.
    I give a lot of fruit (coconut, banana, kiwi, mango, apple..), vegetables (carrots, lettue..), meat and seafood (fish, oysters, mussels, chicken..) to my land hermits crabs.

    I tell them provides a lot of natural shell.

    I have put many others shells and deads leaves after I have take the potography.
