Overview

You can find hermit crabs in the wild; they can live for several months away from water. They do, however, often visit the shores to bath themselves and change their shells, a vital part of living healthy and clean.


Like other crustaceans, hermit crabs have no actual bones, but a hard exoskeleton holds them together.

Most of the time, the hermit crab relies on its shell for protection and camouflage, but sometimes, when a fight is unavoidable, he’s forced to defend himself.

Hermit crabs have an uncanny ability to fight for their right to live in their homes. They use their claws and will fight for their territory and the protection of their shell.

If you’re contemplating becoming a first-time hermit crab parent, this book was written especially for you. You’ll learn the right – and wrong - ways to raise a happy, healthy hermit crab. And yes, you definitely will be able to tell the difference between a healthy and not so healthy and happy crab.

Don’t let his name and his apparent solitary way of life fool you into thinking that this “pet” can be confined to a tank and viewed once in a while.

You’ll discover that you’ll seek out the companionship of these quizzical, strange-looking creatures that intrigue so many children and adults alike!

These unique and interesting animals make the most wonderful pets. Read further and explore how you and your family could benefit from owning a hermit crab!

Somethings are not true, like how you can use river rocks as substrate. No. This will lodge in your hermit crabs molted flesh. The book also said that the sand should be no more than 2in. Wrong. I use ecoearth, and i have 4 inches of the stuff.
