An Educational Starter Pet Kit
Hermit crabs bring out raging excitement in kids because they are so unique and different from usual animals. As pets, hermit crabs can teach children about responsibility. Kids will learn how to take care of their pets, provide for them, and have fun with them. All these activities will make them appreciate life on earth and connect them with nature.
This starter kit will inspire curiosity in children about the diversity of life on earth and encourage them to explore the various forms of life on our planet. Instead of teaching kids about animals using bland text and images, you can help them learn about the natural world around them with the help of this hands-on kit. It’s a compact and inexpensive item with several useful accessories and easy instructions.
Setting Up A Convenient Crabitat
Purple pincher hermit crabs prefer to spend most of their life on land but they breathe through gills. A water mister has been provided to create a humid environment so that their gills remain damp. The crabitat comes with a vented lid which allows a small draft of air inside the crabitat. Water treatment solution clears out the harmful chemicals from the water.
Molting is necessary for your hermit crabs to keep growing healthily. You can use the coconut fiber and extra, larger shells that have been provided to help your hermit crabs with molting. Your hermit crabs will bury themselves in the coconut fiber while molting. After they have finished molting, they will move into the larger shells. As your hermit crabs grow bigger, they will require bigger shells as well as a bigger crabitat.
Have Fun With Your Hermit Crabs
Hermit crabs are active pets who like to have fun, groom themselves, and prove their climbing skills. A cholla wood log has been provided for them to climb and exercise on. More climbing toys and crabitat centerpieces for hermit crabs are available at our online store.
You can provide them with their favorite food in the feeder clamshell to keep them healthy and happy. A sponge has been included to be used as a raft in the water clamshell by your hermit crabs, while they drink water or fill their shells with it. It also helps in increasing the humidity inside the crabitat by providing a larger surface area for water to evaporate.
