Suet for hermit crabs

Ingredients:
Flax Seed
Chia Seed
Amaranth
Wheat
Sesame Seeds
Quinoa (Red and White)
Kelp Powder
Mixed seed bird seed with dried fruit
Organic Coconut oil


Quantities needed depend on how many hermit crabs you have. I used a pinch of each of the items listed. You can use any combination of dry items. You could also substitute organic peanut butter for the Coconut Oil.

In a small bowl with a lid add all of your dry ingredients. Add a small amount of Coconut Oil (room temp is ideal). Use a spoon to smear the oil around so it begins to pickup the dry ingredients. Mix as well as you can using the spoon then place the lid on the bowl and shake it. You may need to add more oil. If so just add a bit and shake again. You want the seed to be just coated enough to stick together. I used a shallow terra cotta tray as my dish. I transferred the suet into the tray and used a spoon to press it flat. The terra cotta should also help absorb any excess oil as it warms up in the tank.
