Hello Crabbers! Hi I’m Shelldon! Just like you, my owner was surprised by the care we hermits require. If you are searching for information and need some guidance, well, you are on the right page! We are here to help. Hermit crabs can be interesting, active pets that can live for up to 40 years. However, you will need to do some thorough research on our habits and needs as well as providing the following supplies to keep us happy and healthy. You are encouraged to go through other hermit care pages and join hermit groups and forums for extra support. Most of your questions may have been asked and answered already through these resources.
