    I wouldnt suggest trying to use those. Hermit crabs will go into anything to protect themselves. I've seen bottle tops, camera film cases etc but a natural shell will be it's first pick.

    I could be wrong, but that looks cruel. I felt so bad for the poor crabbie. He really doesn't have any way to hide in a clear shell. And what was all that white stuff floating around him????? SAD:(

    Yeah I thought it was unhealthy as well, was just seeing if others shared my opinion on it. I feel sorry for the crab living in such an unnatural "home" =(

    I read somewhere quite a while ago about some group that was trying to get make some type of shell for crabs due to the shortage in certain beach areas of appropriate natural shells for larger hermit crabs. If I find the article I'll post the link here!
