    Keris Hermies reminded me about the Strawberry care so I think I'll be ok. I hope to get some more when the stores stock up a little better! I swear tho some stores are just grotesque!

    Straws are considered very delicate and personally I wouldnt recommend anyone getting them unless they've been crabbing for a long time.
    They need specific care, more then the other land hermit crabs.

    Mine seems pretty happy and most of all healthy! BUt your right they do need special attention, but no more love than all the other hermies need : )

    I just got a pair of them but I don't think they like their set up because the boy (Beeren) tries to climb out all night.

    Emma Jean do you have a glass lid?Because if you do they would'nt be able to get out.I have a screen lid & one of my hermie's tried to escape but,could'nt get through the little space that was left for air.(I put a towel wrapped around it)

    The cover is a sliding type because it is a 35 breeder and I have plastic wrap over that for the time being until I can get to the hardware store again to get a piece of plexy glass to cover the screen. So I know they won't get out, but they are really trying.

    Lol.I bet.I had a second level made out of wood but,sadly it would'nt stay up so I just took it out & my biggest hermie @ the time (Big Red) climbed right up on this little white string I put up to tie this hermie hut up & since I have a screen lid he just put's his little feet through & climbed around from one to the next corner till he finally got tired so I took him off.Lol.It was different.Now I have drift wood set up.It's kinda like a second level & my new straw goes crazy over it.Climbs it everynight from 7:30pm till ???
