Hermit Crab Potholder or Fish Bowl Mat
I'd love to see this used as a mat for a fish bowl! I created it with lime green yarn and a white yarn that had bright turquoise flecks. I think it looks just like a green turbo shell--a favorite selection with my hermit crabs. The eyelashes are the perfect finishing touch. I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to re-create it, so it may be a one of a kind. It is nice and dense and 100% cotton.
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.
