I agree...for the most part. I said something only bc the original poster just asked a question and hoped for an answer which it seems they didn’t really get. Instead, the opposite which wasn’t very helpful imho. Just my 2 cents.Overmountain1 wrote: ↑Sat Dec 07, 2019 12:23 pmFor the most part this has remained a civil sharing of opinions. I love seeing that, I think it is great and shows the care with which we speak to one another, and conveys respect. It’s good to see. But mostly I agree with @Crabby in NJ. It doesn’t really answer then question other than we all agree that shipping is not ideal if it can be helped. I love all my crabbies- PPS and exotics, from tiny to jumbo. But I also live in a rural area with very few pet stores and can see why people will order the crabs. If they’re going to be snatched off the beach at least we can give them a better home than so many others would. There is nothing wrong with wanting more than one breed, they’re all really cool and different. Anyway, I’m sure I didn’t add anything new just now, but I wanted to say a little something anyway.

It’s hard for some of us to find anything other than PPs....I would love a crab that does more than just change shells constantly to add to the crabby family. I love them ALL but naturally wanna have more than just one type. They are awesome little creatures and they r already ripped from their natural homes ya know? Why not give them a better life? Idk....Trying to adopt in this area is impossible for anything other than PPs so I totally understand. I wonder how others were able to get their strawberries and e’s or violas and blueberries etc.
regardless, it is true that no matter how you get your hermit crabs, they have been ripped away from their homes, transported in some shipping form which is not ideal....this I agree with whole heartedly. It sucks but that’s the way it is right now. I would rather give the crabbies their best chance of a normal life than watch more be murdered bc nobody would Home them, adopt etc. everyone is entitled to their opinions. We are all here for one main reason, to help each other...help the crabbies thrive! 🥰
