Pet Stores in Twin Cities, MN?

Post by cassiedj » Mon Aug 03, 2015 1:13 am

Hi all,

Does anyone from Minnesota around the metro area know of pet stores that have good hermit crab conditions where I could go and consider adopting a new friend? I got my current crab at HarMar Pet Store in Roseville, but other than that I don't know of any other hermie-carrying stores outside of the big bad chains.

Thanks guys! :crabblush:
Crabbies: currently only one named Romulus.

I didn't know Har Mar still had a pet store. I used to live a mile from that store.

Yesterday I found myself back in my old stomping grounds and dropped in on the pet store in Har Mar mall. The crabs there looked pretty good. They had heat. The substrate was thin, but it was moist. I almost took one home, which says a lot because I said I wasn't going to buy pet store hermits again.

Don't take shallow substrate in pet stores as a bad sign. The substrate should not be deep in the store, so that they won't be dug up by other crabs or by employees to sell.

Exactly! It was probably the first pet store tank of hermits where I actually saw the hermits moving around, not just balled up in their shells.

An update on Har Mar pet store. I was in for a second time this week and was looking with a thought to possibly purchase a hermit crab. There was one small dish of water in an obviously dry tank. All the crabs were tucked tightly into their shells. :( I'll be sending off a note.
