LHC is offering free shipping! Part of me wants to order some violas. Please internet slap me and remind me what a terrible idea it is, because most likely I will never receive them

There are no reputable online sources for exotics at this time, to my knowledge.

Yeah, that's why I'm just going to wait. If I remember the crab correctly, somehow my school library, which doesn't even take care of the crabs properly, ended up with an E.

Must go on the day they get a fresh shipment and go every week for a while as its random. Probably have better luck at petco.

I'm assuming that if you walk in and ask the store when they usually get hermit crab shipments they'll tell you, at least the pet store in my town will do that.

Don't do it. It isn't even safe to ship right now.

I paid through Paypal. The payment was never processed because the seller never marked it as shipped.

All you can do, Nate, is send LiveHermitCrabs.com an email, cc-ing PayPal, officially canceling your order on the grounds of nonfulfillment after a reasonable amount of time. At least you'll have it on record that you've acted in good faith in case LHC.com tries to bill you at a later date.
