Unlike the calcium carbonate "sand" often sold as hermit crab substrate, this premium blend of natural sand, coconut fiber, calcium carbonate, sea salt mix and probiotics is the superior choice for healthy land hermit crabs. The silica sand packs well and the coconut fiber helps with water retention. Calcium and sea salt replicate the exact sand hermit crabs find in their natural environment. Finally, probiotics (beneficial bacteria) help maintain a clean environment.
Hermit crabs are natural diggers. They dig to hunt for food and when it is time to molt. It is very important to fill your crab's habitat with enough moist sand for the molting process. The deep moist sand protects your crab during the molting process and prevents dehydration, which is vital for your crab's longevity.
