I could not find Hawthorn Berries on any of our lists so I'm going to go no on giving them to the crabs.

What I can find on Hawthorn Berries is that humans and animals can eat the berries but not the seeds, which seem to contain Cyanide.Scientific Classification of Crataegus OxyacanthaKingdom = PlantaeOrder = RosalesFamily = RosaceaeGenus = CrataegusSpecies = C. oxyacanthaBinomial name = Crataegus OxyacanthaHawthorn Chemical composition:1 Vitamin C.2 Flavonoids : Quercetin, Hyperoside, Rutin,Flavonoglycosyls,Vitexin-4'-rhamnoside.3 Glycosides.4 Oligomeric procyanidins (OPC) - epicatechol.5 Anthocyanidins and Proanthocyanidins (biflavans)6 Saponins and Tannins.7 Cratetegin (most prevelant in flowers > leaves >berries).8 Other chemical constituents: a) Cardiotonic amines: Phenylethylamine, Tyramine, Isobutylamine, O-methoxy phenylethylamine; b) Choline andacetylcholine; c) Purine derivatives : Adenosine,Adenine, Guanine, Caffeic acid; d) Amygdalin; e)Pectins; f) Triterpene acids : Ursolic acid, Oleonicacid, Crategolic acid

@Shawn, they also contain tannins which have been shown to have a huge negative impact on cattle because tannins are acid they tend to attach to protein molecules and destroys them which has led to muscle loss in cows and horses and has even been banned in cattle and pet foods by the FDA.Hermitcrabs don't tolerate heavy doses of tannins well as the tannin darkens/alters the color of the exoskeleton and can lead to muscle atrophy/destruction which impacts molts and overall health.
