They eat anything really as they are scavengers - things like fruits, peanut butter, bark, egg and meat

They are fun to watch, like i said one is missing at the moment :/ hes buried himself so he may be molting

Hey Hannah we had them years ago.......i LOVED them x)
Unfortunately ours would shed/moult their shells but not like the ones i'd buy 8... I'd spend hours staying up with them stuffing them back into a shell but ............. sadly they all passed away :(
Each one of my children had one, so we had 3 as well :)
Ours loved a mix that you can get here in OZ and they adored their heated pad and special bulb rolleyes
I love the way they tickle your hand when they slowly crawl over you :(|)

little kisses for your hermies xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Their really cool - two of the three have buried themselves though .. maybe to 'destress' hopefully we'll see them again soon :O

We may end up buying three more so we dont just end up taking care of a tank :))

We have to provide the shells. Ive just ordered a load to put inside their tank for if they feel like changing or when they molt :)
