Where do you get these from, at a sensible price ? Used to keep hermit crabs , very interesting and active little buggers .If my memory serves me well , remember them being on the smelly side . Cheers Chris

I got mine from a local exotic pet shop, they cost about £15 each which is more expensive than I've seen online but I got to pick them out and see their living conditions
