Outstanding practical application! I wish I had that kind of time and energy! You highlighted thier dwelling, but you didn’t even mention their names? Any plans to live stream them so they can be TCP stars?

They’ve asked to remain anonymous :wink:

They are kind of hermits so no live streaming publicly for them :sunglasses:

Just an update, the Hermies are doing well, one has successfully molted and the other is in the molting process now.

The real reason for this post is to show the skills of one of the crabs. How this lil’ fella got up here I have no clue because the camera points down and the actions to get there was not captured. There is nothing obvious on the sides of the tank that could have allowed it to have gotten to the center of the lid on the light cable, but there it is.

Starting to think Jedi and Force jump cause I’m pretty baffled

This only tells me one thing… more cameras are needed.

DO NOT GO TOWARD THE LIGHT!

My guess is he scaled the escape tube you provided for him from the lid opening and reached over to the light cord trying to get to the lights. Spry little bugger.

The funny thing is the humidifier tube is pretty high up the glass and its lil crab arms would have to be at least 4 in long to get to the center wire for the lights… not even anything to monkey bar swing on. :rofl:

And you know that shell is heavy!
I was watching him for awhile and at one point thought it was going to drop the shell then yolo off the wire

Believe it or not, they can climb using the silicone that seals the edges of the tank together. I’ve seen it in person!

Hi!

I use my Wyze v3 to monitor my 50 gallon hermit crab habitat. I have 5 hermits and it’s a ton of fun to watch their daily escapades.
