Rated 5 out of 5 by Saaammm Not right!
This is not a very good cage for a hermit crab. Let's remember, they are tropical pets and need humidity. The open bars don't keep in enough moisture for them. I recommend using one of Petmsmart's aquariums. I would like to buy another hermit crab in the future and will get a 10 gallon tank for them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Keven381 Crabs seem to love it
It took me over an hour to snap all the pieces together and make sure everything was secure. It wasn't until after I put the hermit crabs in the cage that I realized they needed a high humidity environment to stay healthy and this cage was not the best type. But the 1st night after I turned out the lights the crabs became active and seemed to enjoy climbing the sides of the cage. So I put a warm mist humidifier next to the cage. So far the crabs seem very happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by petmamma Re-engineered rodent habitat
I bought one of these to replace a smaller habitat I bought on the boardwalk. It is extremely hard to put together. Once you get it, though, you can carry it around. There is no place to stick a heater. The bottom is flat (so it would burn the table), and so we had to raise it up a bit.
There is a strange storage compartment on the top that is too small to fit any of our crab food or tools in. The sides are molded plastic with tube recesses as if you could add some tunnel onto it or connect it to something else. Since the recesses are solid, it looks like they just took an old design for a rodent habitat, didn't poke out the recesses, and renamed it. Unfortunately, this is the best "crabitat" that PetSmart has. I would suggest buying an aquarium or other habitat that you could turn into a proper crabitat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1petlover2015 Not as pictured!
I hope someone who works at pets mart actually reads this review and does something about it. The picture and the product Do Not Match. I would not have bought this if I knew the sides were all wire which they are. In the picture the sides are plastic and only have a small wire section. but in reality the sides area completely open therefore no humidity stays in or heat. I think maybe the picture was from another model they had.
But the first habitat was missing pieces which I only realized at the end of putting it together so after returning and putting it together gains i my not returning but am very unhappy and hope Petsmart fixes this defect in getting the correct picture or fixing the product!
