Introduction: How to Make a Moss Pit for Hermit Crabs!
Hermit crabs are really enjoyable pets. and they love to climb.
During the day, hermit crabs go up into the trees to sleep. then they come down in the evenings and scavenge for food.
Moss can be found in trees in their tropical habitat. So a moss pit simulates a tree!
Step 1: You Will Need.......
Alright, so you will need a plastic container, (preferably a shower caddy) ***THAT DOESN'T CONTAIN LEAD, OR PVC!***
Some old time fishing net, lizard ladder, or vine type plastic plant. this will be your hermit crabs' way into the pit.
And reptile moss, string, and suction cups.
Step 2: Build It!
Tie the netting on to the container. next use the suction cups to attach the container to the side wall of the tank (thats why you make this in the corner of the tank) . Then stuff the netting (thats hanging) into the bedding. ***TIP: Make sure it's sturdy! this HAS to hold your crabs' weight!***
Now add the moss to the container!
Step 3: Finishing Things Up!
Your now finished! you can throw a few shells in the pit for your crabs, and maybe make a "shell shop" underneath the pit! YOUR HERMIES WILL LOVE THIS!!!
