Anyone have a hermit crab?

Are they hard to care for? Do you need a heat source for them? Anything I should know before getting one?

  • I used to have them as a child... indoors is usually warm enought o not need an extra heat source, if your house is cold, snag a heating stone... they are easy and cheap to take care of!!!

  • No, but you could probably find tons of books or websites on them. They look like neat little critters.

  • I would not recommend this pet for small kids to handle without an adult. They have a tendency to pinch. I had one draw blood..
    Other than that..we had some for about a year. We took bets how long they would live. I think they neat to watch at someone else's house, but unless you want a yuck smell in the have to change their cage often. U are better off with a guinea pig. :)
