The Beginning

I have been keeping land hermit crabs since 2005. What I have learned about dietary needs of these amazing creatures has prompted me to conduct food trials of local flora in an attempt to help fellow crab-keepers expand the variety with items from their own backyards!

Someday I want to open an on-line hermit crab food store featuring hand-harvested and organic ingredients to help city-dwellers access non-human grade food sources free of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.

To that end, I have been collecting leaves, bark, roots, flowers and other items in rural areas of Colorado and conducting controlled food trials on these items. My cousin from Washington State has been collecting items from her locale to further my research.
