If we converse about pets, the first thing that comes to our minds are dogs, cats, turtles, mice, fishes, but least we thought about hermit crab as pet.

But did you know that hermit crabs can actually be grown to be a pet? I also was amaze knowing that these creatures by the seashore can be sheltered in a fancy tank mimicking its wild habitat and can be provided with some happy and healthy, Hermit Crabs Habitats right under your roof. Yes, you read it right. And if you are curious and nosy enough to find out how interesting hermit crabs can be as pet, there are innumerable resources in the internet that can help you in starting how to raise a healthy and fit hermit crabs.

But what are hermit crabs? Hermit crabs are decapod crustaceans of the super family Paguroidea. They are commonly seen in the tide pools, usually during low tides. I used to chase and catch some of these when I was younger. There are various species of hermit crabs, but most have long, soft abdomens and protect this by retracting to empty seashells. Hermit crabs does not have a shell of their own, they just make use of some other sea snails shell and abandon it after they have outgrown it.
Know the feeling of how it’s like to live in someone else’s home, raise a hermit crab.
