Since William was the one most wanting hermit crabs, we told him to name them. He came up with Hermie (of course) and Fred. I tell you what, we spent a whole lot for these two little critters. I do love the habitat we purchased though.
Here is Hermie. Of course after the photo was taken, he (or is it she?) decided to stick his claws and legs out. I am not quite brave enough to hold them.
William could sit and watch his new pets all day long. We have made it a point that he has to take responsibility in taking care of them.
So here's the thing. I know very little on how to take care of hermit crabs. There's a boatload of information out there, and some things are very contradictory. This is why I wanted to reach out to my readers for YOUR advice. If you have any experience with hermit crabs, I'd appreciate your tips. What natural foods can we feed them? How often do you clean their habitat and HOW do you even do it? I'm nervous that this is going to end up being a whole lot of work. I look forward to any feedback I can get! Thank you :)
