moving- transporting crabs

Post by kansas »

Hi, I am moving about 30 minutes away and am planning on using a critter keeper to transport my hermies. However, one of my crabs is buried. (I have two crabs). What should I do? I am afraid to dig him up. Please let me know!

Thanks.

Digging the crab up once should be okay. Just don't dig them up regularly.

Would you happen to know where he is burrowed? If so, anyway you can scoop the whole area (like put a glass down over where he is, put something flat under the cup and pick up that who glass area to be put into another container?
