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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Whisper27 Not for a Permanent Habitat
Hermit crabs need very specific temperature and humidity conditions that cannot be easily maintained in a tank like this. I keep my crabs in a glass aquarium and purchased this for an exercise/temporary pen. Rated average because it is great for a temporary cage but not for a permanent habitat.
I purchased an earlier version of this cage and was not pleased with it because the parts did not snap in place, and there was a connector missing that was supposed to be welded to the wiring. However, this version replaced much of the wiring with plastic and holds together much better.

Even though I read about hermit crabs, prior to purchasing for my daughter, I still relied on employee to guide me. I continue to read and learned that this plastic thing is not good for someone who wants the hermit crabs to last because they need their environment to maintain a certain level of humidity. It makes no sense to me that I spend about $35 for nothing.
