she is very informational but she mostly talks about wild hermit crabs whitch does not need to be cared for by the people who own hermit crabs but i think she is tring to tell people about the life the wild hermit crabs have and what they have to enduer in there hard fight for survivle but unlike our hermit crabs they dont have to ender what they have to any more.

This book was pretty good. It tells all land hermit crabs and their life in the wild. The main flaw I had with this book was that it focused more on wild crabs than it did on what you can do for pet crabs. It also had one piece of information which I have found to be false. That is to mist the inside of your crabitat with water to maintain humidity levels. This WILL cause harmful bacteria to grow in the cage and it could kill your crabs. Other than that, the book was very informative.

Sue Fox has delivered a 'crown jewel' to the world of 'Crabbing'. This book is filled with excellent pictures and information for those interested in Gods little creatures, the Hermit Crab. The book is written so that people can read and understand crab care without having to go to a dictionary to look up every other word. It is concise and well organized. One of the best books on Hermit Crabs I have come across in some time. This book fills a void of several years, with the lack of good current information about the Land Hermit Crab. Her inclusion of the popular Compressus species (aka 'Ecuadorian') was most welcomed! I highly recommend this fine publication to anyone interested in Hermit Crabs.
