    Like I said before, you should never trust a pet store on hermit crabs.;)

    Also, my hermit crabs slept on it sometimes and went in it a few times before I found out it was bad, that doesn't mean that they like it. They just like to climb.

    I dont get why pine is actually poisonous to them, isnt it only poison if they eat the bark? If yes, cant I remove the bark to make it safe??

    no, pine trees have this kind of smell that irritates them. I think its every part of a pine tree that has that smell.

    It just hit me in the head that Peep has the same shell as Oscar. If is has this beautiful white in it then we have the same shells.

    CoolDoggy - Im not sure if it has white in it because I only see him for like 2 minutes during the night then he goes back into his underground cave lol

    Laughs - I forget the name but my dad had it in his terrarium when he had a bearded dragon, you can find them online (like vickis site) and at pet stores (expensive though)

    Luckyyyy! I used to date a guy at a pet store in Houston... it was a small pet store and I managed to convince him to convince his manager to get appropriate living conditions for the crabs. They just wouldn't put really deep substrate because they needed to "show" their crabs. But it was cool because sometimes I got free or discounted crabs if they were sick or something, because I had really deep substrate and could also ISO them like they needed to be. :)
