Pet Hammock in Jute Twine & Burlap
100% Jute twine and burlap two-tone pet hammock would be a beautiful addition to any crabitat! Useful for storing shells or creating a second level. The burlap has less stretch than a fully crocheted hammock, so it makes a firmer net or platform. Long ties included for easy suspension. Jute is safe even if ingested by a hermit crab and is safe for other pets as well. Pre-washed and treated with Himalayan pink salt to resist mold. Very delicate edges (burlap is prone to raveling), so this should be cleaned by hand. Biodegradable.
Land hermit crabs need a varied diet, but human-grade food sources do not properly mimic what these scavengers might find in their natural environment. These are my notes regarding successes and failures of the food trials I have conducted on possible non-human grade food sources while developing a line of all-natural pet food products called Crabotanicals.
