I went to a pet store semi-close to where I live here in Minnesota and all the animals seemed properly cared for except the hermit crab(s)! I was so upset. First off, I know that wire cages are not acceptable living enviroments for hermit crabs. They are worse than the KKs! There was only 1 PP in the cage though and it had one dish which was dry both days I went there. I had shells in there, but not any that would fit it. Since it was a wire cage, of course there wasn't enough substrate for burrowing. I was upset. I bought him out of pity. He isn't active like my other hermies and is actually pretty aggressive. Poor guy. I wish I knew what to do better for him, or if there was anything I could do even.
