Feeling Crabby

I’m not sure if you remember, but we have pet hermit crabs! They are a surprisingly fun little pet. They are relatively easy to take care for and get along well with other crabs (for the most part).  Sometimes they will fight with each other over shells, but otherwise they get along together well!2015-11-05-22-48-03

The Newest Addition to the Family

We recently went out and purchased a pet Hermit Crab. I always thought that the logical progression of pets went from fish to cats, cats to dogs. In our case, it went from cats to Hermit Crabs.

I wasn’t sure how I would feel about them. My  boyfriend bought them on a whim (he had them as a kid). But I’ve warmed up to the little crustaceans; they sure are funny.

We currently have 2 hermit crabs. We bought one a few weeks before getting this second crab (shown). Despite their name, they are very social creatures. The two seem to be getting along well. Shy at first, they have warmed up to us a bit. I am sure there will be more posts about hermit crabs in the very near future.
