We got hermit crabs for the kidlets. In the beginning they were fantastic. Generally speaking hermit crabs are low maintenance pets and relatively inexpensive to maintain. They were happily active and entertaining to watch scuttle about the terrarium. Watching them eat is fascinating. I even witnessed one change its shell.
I have diligently followed the instructions for care.
I have managed to kill three.
We will not be owning hermit crabs again.
