Re: Sizing-How to

I measured the other shell and it's not a 2" shell. Just slightly larger than the 1 1/2" shell. I am going to order some 1 3/4 and 2 inch shells. I hate picking him up and don't know if I can get a measurement of his legs.

Thanks for your help

Re: Sizing-How to

Completely not related to your post, but were you a member on here before with a different username?? I honestly don't remember. It would have been many many years ago and I wouldn't have been active for very long. I got two tiny hermit crabs as a lark in 2004. One died very soon after. Right now I...

Sizing-How to

How are hermit crabs sized? I have a PP that I think is pretty large. I've had him about 14 yrs? He just came up from a moult. He moved into a larger shell. This is the shell he just dropped. https://scontent.ford1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/33676903_10211846030526560_3042437296411377664_n.jpg?_nc_cat...

He is mounting once per year for about 60 days. I probably have some time but I'd like to offer him a variety now. He has only ever used turb...
