Where can I get large hermit crab shells?

Post by Rubylovespd » Sat Oct 03, 2020 12:33 am

I have two large hermit crabs that love their turbo shells. They have been in them for a long time and one of them never goes into his shell. He doesn’t fit. I’ve had such a hard time finding a big enough shell that isn’t $15+. I bought very expensive shells with a 2 inch opening and they were way too big and I can’t return:(. Their current shells have 1 1/4 inch openings. Does anyone have an “underground” seller they buy their shells from who might have a deal on turbos that have a 1 1/2 inch opening? Thanks to anyone for helping me out :) Also I’m not a cheap person, I want the best for them but I’m on a budget because I’m 15 and don’t want my parents to have to pay for them.

Even though I don't live in the states, I heard Naples seashell company and etsy (theshellstore etc.) are great places to buy shells!

I tried Naples and their prices are weird like a 1 inch shell is $3 and a 1 1/2 inch is $15 it must be because they’re more rare and such but it’s definitely frustrating! I’ll try Etsy, thank you!

Some shells are harder to find and in higher demand than other cos of looks, overall rarity etc.
