I checked around but it is safe to say he was dumped. He is set up in a 10 gallon tank now and is the most active hermit crab I have ever owned. He has changed shells from the painted pink shell at least 3 times. Once right in front of my family. I plan to throw the painted shell he arrived in away after a few more days but it has been an exciting week for him and us. Hopefully he continues to survive the week. Glad to have found this group as a care reference.
Good for you for rescuing the little guy! I'm not sure what people are thinking when they just let them loose like that. Image

I like to think that maybe young children were changing the enclosure and he escaped. It is a little less sad.
