    Can I feed my hermit crabs a bagel? Like a blueberry bagel with light cream cheese? I thought I would ask cuz I know they can eat like processed foods, but I was wondering if it was ok to feed them this.:)

    I don't feed mine any processed foods (except Hikari Bio-Pure b/c it doesn't have any preservatives). I'm sure there are ingredients in both the bagel and cream cheese which they shouldn't have!

    Youd have to find out whats in the dough. Im pretty sure it contains some salt, which is bad for hermit crabs. Fresh blueberries are ok.

    Blueberries are full of vitamin K so they are a good option.

    It does list salt in the "bagel base", and also the oils and corn syrups are not good!

    Also, the "enzymes" and red dye #40 are bad for them!
