    Last night, well pretty much every night, I spied on my hermits with my flashlight. Decided to take a vid or two of them being a lot more active than in the day :p

    So voila!

    Here we see 4 crabs, Pain and Kain, boudah and Dot, the smaller E.

    Here we have Kain, who is climbing the rock, he's one of my two biggest hermits. His brother (I say brother because I bought them at the same time ;p) Pain is the other giga crab on the left in the dark green shell who is climbing the coconut. They are near tennis ball size, close but not yet there. You can see how big he is compared to the smaller E that is hiding in the crevice in the rock.

    Here is a close up of Pain, who was drinking out of the salt water bowl and got kinda freaked out when I started filming. In the background you can make out crayola who is chowing down on some eggshell.

    More to come =)

    I like to spy on mine too!  Only it's more me pressing my nose up close to the glass and squinting because I've got a night glo light that makes everything different colors and still mostly dark..

    It's funny how they're all hanging on the rock, and that big one has got a major claw on him!

    I once did this when the power went out. I got my flashlight to check on Shelle, but I don't do it often because she hates being stared at. :)

    I have two night glow lights on as well, but for video purposes it's not enough. Most don't mind me checking them at night, some even come towards the light, drawn to it. They like that rock, they especially like to poop in the crevice :/

    Yeah, they always find the worst places to poop, like, with me, Shellle does it in her water dishes. It's gross getting it out.

    I was just spying on mine, and saw two of the three out, woot! They are still pretty shy, but I try to be very quiet and slow around them so it's going pretty well!

    @Pain: lol 'doh!! If only you had opposable ..thumbs?

    Yeah, but they don't even need those? Shelle always supprises me by clinging to the cage mesh ceiling!

    Yeah, I wish Shelle wasn't so afraid of me.

    WOW! Good timing, LordRhal! Catching hermit crabs changing is very rare!
