Halloween Moon Crabs
Posted: Wed Mar 21, 2018 8:16 am
Hi! So I’ve been looking into getting some pet Halloween Moon crabs, but I can’t find much information on if they’re all wild caught, if they’re endangered, etc. I don’t want to adopt a pet that’s wild caught or endangered, aside from my hermies that I adopted 3 years ago before I learned how horrible their circumstances are, being taken from the wild, pulled out of their shells, etc. I’m really interested in Halloween Moon crabs, and I’m 99% positive they’re wild caught. But I just want to see if there is anyone here who might have more information on them. I understand their care, and it’s not too different from that of a hermit crab, but it’s their origins and treatment before they end up in that box at the door or pet store paper box I’m interested in. I don’t want to support mistreatment or wild capturing of a species.
