Coco-huts FTW =D
I got my cocohut and crabs in a tourist area in another state on vacation. If you are anywhere near a tourist area, you might find them. If you get ahold of it or a coconut, you can carve an opening yourself =] If you get a store-bought cocohut, perhaps try sanding down the opening to make it larger? it may take a long time, but it should work (just make sure you get all the sanding dust off before placing it in the cage) =]
I have a cocohut, half of a log, and a big driftwood log that they alos love to climb on.
Half logs were recently found to be made of unsafe woods (pine/cedar), so I'd recommend you get rid of that. Pine and cedar both, if crabs are exposed to them, will cause the crab to (eventually) drop its shell and die. Just a heads up!
I currently have a "rock shelter" and a "log tunnel" for my hermit crabs. . .
Alex - is your "log tunnel" a half log, usually called a "habba hut" or something similar? If it is, it's not safe as we've been discussing in several threads around the forum. If it has bark on the outside and some of the wood on the inside, it is made of an unsafe wood and can and will kill your hermies.
No, it is not. It is made up of small sections of wood glued together to form a tunnel.
I don't smell the odvious "pine smell" from my half log, and neither does my friend. (I own pine trees) I gave the half log to my friend in exchange for 2 little cocohuts with perfect sized hole openings! I also just stuck with that old fake log.
Oooooooooo!!! I love Coco Huts!!! But often, the doors are too small. . .
I know. That's my problem. I can never find the right size ones. Finally I got some teenies, just so I had a use for those old coco huts.
Ask your parents to cut the openings in the cocohut bigger - they aren't hard to cut.
Okay, thank you, Emmac350!!!
Ohhh, I wouldn't say that!
Last time I tried to cut open a bigger hole for one of those...well, it didn't work. It was only HALF carved to make a pretty ugly opening.
Luckily, if the coco's WIDE enough, the crab can just dug a little bit to make the opening a little taller. I saw Shelle doing this, and I'm not talking about massive labor for her to do it, she barely had to do anything at all!
Thanks, Donny (TMNT)!!!
Terra Cotta pot. They seem to like it enough.
And it is a good place to store some burrowing substrate. . .
I have 2 coco huts that I carved a door in after we got the meat and milk out of it
I want that cute little eggplant!
The overall adventage of purchasing your own coconuts and making your own coco huts is that you get the meat and milk, as well as the shelter. . .
I know, it is sooooo cute!!! Did you enter a picture in this month's contest, yet, Willow555???
