Anybody here knowledgeable about land hermit crabs? I saw a bunch for sale during my recent beach trip, and they seem pretty cool.

I remember trying to keep them when I was probably 15, but had neither the knowledge nor the resources to do it properly.

They smell...that's all I can remember about owning them unfortunately.

And roses is not the smell I'm referring too. :blink:

Yea, I kinda remember that from back in the day. Was hoping it was mostly due to my lack of crab keeping skillz. :sick:

I had 4 when I was a kid, but my dog knocked their terrarium off the shelf and ate all 4... They're cute, but I wouldn't get any again.

Lamm- wasn't that the mixer dog you had that was really protective of you?

I had one too, at one point. Was fine, kept the water clean and all that, though he did wake me up a few times in the night, moving things.

He ended up very smelly when I went away for a bit, and forgot to remind my mother to look after him. Let's hope he's still buried, like all the mice at that house.

Throw yourself in- use the wrong words, try different foods, kiss random fish. It's an adventure!
