Hermit Crabs Mistaken For Disposable Pets

You can find them almost anywhere near the​ seashore boardwalks. All you​ have to​ do is​ walk into a​ cramped little gift shop on​ the​ beach and you​ can find them,​ stuck in​ a​ 6"X 3" carrying cage and nothing else. if​ you​ haven’t looked there,​ all you​ have to​ do is​ look in​ the​ nearest wannabe pet shop. They are stashed on​ the​ darkest bottom shelf with tons of​ others,​ cramped in​ a​ small aquarium with a​ little water and food. Some of​ them won’t even venture out of​ their shells. Some of​ them are even missing limbs and claws. That’s right,​ I’m talking about hermit crabs. Before they even have a​ chance to​ be chosen by people from a​ caring home,​ they are already being mistreated wherever they are being sold. the​ cards are already stacked against them.

Many pet stores treat hermit crabs as​ if​ they are simply stock. They take good care of​ their birds that are worth hundreds of​ dollars. Same goes for their expensive puppies and kittens. But where are the​ pet stores that care about pets down to​ the​ smallest and most inexpensive. Just because they don’t cost an​ arm and a​ leg to​ buy and care for doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to​ be cared for in​ the​ same way. as​ you​ know,​ temperature and humidity are key components to​ keeping a​ hermit crab healthy. Shoving a​ small aquarium on​ the​ darkest bottom shelf in​ the​ store,​ leaving the​ lid open with no humidity or​ temperature gauge,​ and not even caring to​ regulate temperature and humidity is​ total,​ undeniable hermit crab abuse. Unfortunately,​ there isn’t a​ big organization to​ make pet stores treat these small creatures humanely. the​ SPCA won’t come barging indignantly into a​ pet store treating hermit crabs horribly. This isn’t something that is​ important to​ very many people.

If you​ are interested enough to​ purchase a​ hermit crab from a​ pet store,​ most of​ the​ time you​ won’t get an​ information or​ fact sheet about your pet. if​ you​ question the​ store clerk about tank conditions or​ ask the​ pros and cons of​ certain types of​ diets,​ you​ are dismissed because the​ clerk doesn’t know anything about the​ pets they are selling or​ just flat out do not care to​ learn. They see hermit crabs as​ a​ "disposable" pet. you​ know... the​ kind people buy and just in​ case they don’t take care of​ it​ and it​ dies,​ it’s ok; they are cheap and they can simply replace it. the​ pet store associates themselves even say that hermit crabs do not last as​ pets. Not only do some people believe this way,​ some pet stores having a​ return policy for defective animals,​ are used when the​ crab is​ mistreated,​ dies within the​ 30 days,​ then is​ taken back and another victim is​ chosen. This should never be the​ case. Hermit crabs can live 15 to​ 20 years or​ more,​ if​ taken care of​ properly. it​ is​ unfair to​ treat any creature this way. These animals are living,​ breathing creatures and deserve to​ be treated fairly. They didn’t ask to​ be plucked from their tropical climates. They didn’t ask to​ be bread in​ captivity for eventual sale. They are simply creatures that exist and deserve to​ be treated with care.

Please don’t think that if​ you​ purchased a​ crab and it​ died and you​ replaced it​ that you​ are necessarily in​ the​ same category as​ these impatient,​ uncaring pet owners. Many times,​ the​ hermit crabs are so stressed out from the​ horrible treatment they receive while they are waiting to​ be sold that they just can’t handle being moved to​ a​ new location. Besides the​ fact that most pet store clerks don’t handle or​ feed or​ house them correctly,​ they don’t monitor the​ patrons who handle them,​ either. For example,​ the​ pet store I’ve been referencing about keeping the​ hermit crabs in​ a​ dark,​ hardly suitable atmosphere is​ the​ same place I found one of​ my hermit crabs,​ who was already missing a​ limb from stress. Instead of​ the​ crabs being in​ a​ place where they and the​ people handling them can be seen,​ these hermit crabs were on​ the​ last row so that no one could see who was picking up the​ hermit crabs. Unruly and unsupervised children,​ and uncaring,​ ignorant people are both fully capable of​ accessing these creatures without supervision from a​ pet store associate. This means that they are fully able to​ roughly handle,​ terrify,​ and drop the​ hermit crabs that are for sale. if​ you​ researched hermit crab care,​ purchased a​ hermit crab,​ took it​ directly home,​ and began caring for it,​ and it​ still died,​ chances are,​ that it​ wasn’t you​ who contributed to​ the​ tragic demise of​ your hermit crab.

If any of​ this has happened to​ you,​ don’t blame yourself. the​ best thing you​ can do is​ find a​ reputable pet store and do research about it​ before you​ make a​ decision to​ purchase any pet from it. Take the​ time to​ look at​ the​ way the​ crabs are displayed to​ sell. Ask associates if​ they are sitting in​ temperature and humidity controlled climates. if​ not,​ strongly consider not purchasing from this store. Do research on​ hermit crab care,​ and question store associates to​ see if​ they know what they are talking about. Do your homework. in​ the​ end,​ you​ will be a​ much more satisfied pet owner. if​ you​ have that tendency to​ attract strays,​ you​ might consider going to​ that awful pet store,​ and saving some of​ those poor hermit crabs. an​ idea to​ help you​ with this is​ to​ put the​ crabs from that store in​ their own cage. Leave them separate from your healthy hermit crabs. as​ you​ observe,​ remove the​ crabs that are healthy and place them in​ with your current crab habitat. you​ can try to​ nurse the​ unhealthy ones back to​ health. it​ is​ a​ brave endeavor,​ but might not always turn out the​ way we would like. But if​ you​ are willing to​ try to​ save these animals,​ they are much better off with you​ than a​ person who won’t care for them. Whatever you​ decide,​ just remember that these are living beings. They deserve to​ be treated as​ such.

Cross Training for Fitness and Fat loss

Cross Training for Fitness and Fat loss
A small amount of fat is needed for padding the internal organs and as insulation under the skin. Excess fat leads to such diseases as diabetes, gout, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and gallbladder problems. There are very few, very fat persons. The reason is that the fittest, not the fattest survive.
The numbers on your scale do not indicate whether you are fit or fat. Far more significant than your total body weight is the composition of your body tissue. If a man’s fatty tissue is bigger than 14% up to 15% of his body mass, or if a woman’s is more than 20% to 22%, he or she is overweight, or more precisely, over fat.

The problem now is focused on how to resolve the problem. The problem with most people who want to lose weight is that they have the propensity to concentrate more on getting those numbers lower than what they are seeing now. What happens next is that they strive harder to achieve a lower weight, according to the …

Reiki Symbols

The three important symbols given to a student during Level 2 attunement are Cho Ku Rei or the power symbol, Sei He Ki or the emotional and mental healing symbol, and Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen or the distance healing symbol. The symbols 'hon sha ze sho nen' and 'dai ko myo' were written in kanji language. The reiki symbols are the vibrations one will experience when one is in state of reiki Samadhi. 

We need to get these symbol attuned from a reiki master. As time passed, the original form of these symbols started getting lost. 

For example when madam Takata made reiki masters, there would have been different types of 'hon sha ze sho nen' and 'dai ko myo'. 

It was to preserve their original form that they were drawn on paper so that nobody can further introduce any modifications in how they are drawn. The 'Sei he ki' symbol is used to overcome the obstacles in path of reiki energy.
