5-Stars ALL the way --- cover-to-cover!
Saturday night, I bought this book...desperate for info on Ecuadorian Hermit Crabs...mine had stopped eating, drinking, & coming out of their shells completely. I was scared they were dying...
The pet stores really tried hard to help with GREAT advice & sympathy...but nothing seemed to help.
So many people had said to offer ALL crabs SALT WATER. And I had given them a SMALL dish of it plus a LARGE bowl of chlorine-free water to swim in.
Well, that is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what Ecuadorian Hermit Crabs REQUIRE TO LIVE!!! And I learned that HERE in THIS BOOK!
So, I immediately reversed the containers (putting the chlorine-free water in the SMALL dish and the SALT WATER in the LARGE bowl.
The next morning, I found 2 of my 4 Ecuadorians SOAKING in the SALT WATER! And later in the day, a 3rd was SOAKING in the SALT WATER --- WITHOUT HIS SHELL!!!
We have had our little hermies for about three weeks. They at first seemed depressed but then started fighting all the time and wrecking their home. So instead of getting them counseling, I sought out a guide because it became clear the pet store did not tell us everything on how to care for these little guys, and they did not have a hermit care guide like this available at the store but rather a pamphlet. This book did explain different behaviors and how to help your hermit cope which of course the pet store left out. I really like the section about their dietary needs and treats that you can safely give them. I was wondering why one of them was stealing my popcorn. Since we just started on their crabitat, I found the shopping list and pricing helpful as we plan to expand and decorate their home. I am very glad I found this book to help me care for my hermit crabs as it fills in the holes that the glorious pet store left out when they sold them to us.
This book is great everything you need to know before you buy Hermit Crabs I am still thinking whether to buy them as pets but this book makes reality hit home so you know what your in for. I did not realize these little creatures needed so much care daily. I really recommend this. Read before you buy Hermits.
