Where to Find Different Hermit Crab Species

Post by jonathon1989 » Sun Dec 15, 2019 2:28 pm

I know a lot of crab owners on here have different species but I can't seem to find any in my area besides Purple Pinchers. I am specifically interested in finding a Strawberry Land Hermit Crab.

Any ideas?

Look on the adoption pages

It can be hard to find them. Then when you do find them through adoption pages, people pick them up quick. Just keep searching different adoption pages and someday you might get lucky. Once in awhile some local pet shops will get them in too. I don’t like to promote buying but at the same time I don’t like to see people get criticized for buying either.

I agree with Riniky. Always try to adopt whenever possible. Be patient. Make sure you do your research before taking on exotics. They need somewhat special care. My husband and I are both guilty of buying strawberries and Es. However, we have rescued and adopted 15-20 crabs, if not more ( we have 44 total that we know of). Always try to do less harm, that's the bottom line. Be educated as well.
