    There is a social group called Crabby-tatta-tat-tat. It was created by NitaRocks! and you can chat about your crabitats on it.

    Streaming video uses an extreme amount of bandwidth. I am sure this site hasa limit and that is the reason you have to have you pictures hosted on a site like photobucket. A Forum like this just does not have enough bandwidth for that, awesome idea though, i have been thinking about setting up a Crabby cam since we got our cabs but cant find a host cheap enough to put it out there.

    Yeeah, I always wanted to do that since I watched this vid:
    YouTube - What do hermit crabs do at night?
    but it only works with computers with webcams attached to them. To the people with laptops that have webcams, you could probably do this! Look at the description. It says it takes a picture every 10 seconds, that's why it looks sped up. Unfortunately, I'm not that good with that kind of stuff so I can't do it :p

    P.S. At around 1:08, look at the end of the half-log. After a few seconds, it looks like one crab buries itself!
