Need Adopter for 1 Abandoned Hermit Crab - Baltimore, MD

Post by Lannydeb » Thu Jun 18, 2020 6:11 pm

Hello,
I found an abandoned pet hermit crab- its shell is neon orange with googly eyes, on the beach in the Outer Banks, NC. I wasn't sure if I should leave it, but I did a little research and it looks like this hermit crab is not native to the NC area. So I took it with me, and have housed it temporarily. I am on vacation and am from Maryland. I do not have any experience raising a hermit crab and I know that they need a lot of care, so I am trying to find it a good home with someone that has the knowledge to care for it properly.

Location (nearest large city, state, country): Baltimore/Annapolis MD; Not far from Washington DC
How Far Will You Travel?: I am willing to travel locally in the metro area or maybe about 2 hours
Would You Be Willing to Ship? (Applicable in the USA Only): I am willing to ship, I need to learn about the proper way to safely ship a hermit crab
Number of Crabs, Size of The Crabs, and Species If Known: 1 small crab, I believe it is a purple pincher hermit crab
Supplies and Tank That Are Included (If Any): I do not own any supplies
Adoption or Supply Fee Being Asked (If Any): No fee
I Would Like to Be Contacted By - Email - or - PM - . leyandeb at gmail dot com

PM me if he did not already get a home. I live in Baltimore (Catonsville, really) and I have a 20 gallon tank with a small colony of crabs and was looking for another one.
My 5 crabs: Dilly (purple pincher, medium-small), Flame (purple pincher, medium), Fleck (purple pincher, medium), Bubbles (blueberry, medium-large), Indigo (blueberry, large-extra large).
