Food Trials: Dragonfruit Results!

Two days ago, I trialed fresh dragonfruit for the first time with my hermies. I put in a slice and let it sit in the crabitat for two days.

The results: the hermies definitely liked it! I saw quite a few crabs come up the food dish and nibble the white part of the fruit. It seemed like they liked it on day two better than the first day, which makes sense because land hermit crabs normally like fruit a little riper than we as humans do.

Overall, I think it was a success! This fruit was a little expensive for me, but if you can find it cheap, I would definitely try it with your crabs!
