Pet Ladder Beaded Macrame with focal beads in Sisal & Bamboo
I created this macrame pet climber or ladder with hermit crabs in mind, but I think birds would like it very well too. I made it with bamboo skewers, 100% sisal twine and acrylic (plastic) beads. It was very difficult to make and my hands are raw from the rough sisel fiber, but I love the results. I may try to make a crochet version, which would make them easier to construct.
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.
