it is a sponge

does what any sponge does - not a good or reliable method for increasing and or maintaining humidity in a crab habitat or for keeping land crabs properly hydrated

Hermit crabs DO NOT need this!!! The only good it does for them is that the crab may eat the sponge. They need salt and fresh water bowls that they can FULLY SUBMERGE THEMSELVES in. Pet store "care guides" are almost completely incorrect for these little guys. Please check out the Land Hermit Crab Owners Society for a PROPER care guide.

great investment

My hermit crab loves it. We used to have one but eventually we do throw it away after a few months and replace it. It took us a while to replace it.

Bad For Hermit Crabs!

These are NOT an appropriate nor needed item for Hermit Crabs. They grow mold and bacteria, and Hermit Crabs require both fresh and salt water dishes that are deep enough for them to fully submerge in. Dont use these!

Happy crab!

This sponge is exactly what my hermit crab needed. It's large, sturdy & a perfect natural sponge, MUCH better than the crappy sliver of sponge that came with the crab
