Land Hermit Crabs, are one of the most popular and easy to care for pets available today. These crustaceans are very clean and can become very friendly once they get to know you. Hermit Crabs tend to sleep during the day and play at night. The warmer their environment the more active they will be.

Hermit Crabs are social and live in large groups in the wild and are therefore best kept in groups of three or more.
