A crab that has a soft abdomen so it hides in a shell. There are two types of hermit crabs: marine and land hermit crabs. Marine crabs live in the ocean and most kinds of hermit crabs are marine. Some of these can be kept in a reef tank. Not having a lot of experience with them, I know so far they are fairly easy to keep in a reef tank and don't have a lot of special needs. Don't take it from me though. I think if you have one and are concerned with the care needed for it a good idea would be to research it using any search engine.
Land hermit crabs are special because they are able to live on land. There are only a few species that can do this. They are nocturnal (not sure if marine crabs are too) and are scavengers that eat a variety of food from seaweed to dead animals. They breed by laying eggs in the ocean, where the little crabs will live for a long time before they become full hermit crabs. Shells are important because thier abdomen is easily damaged and dried out. It is also a source of protection for their whole body. If there is a shortage they have been known to fight eachother for a shell.
Also an obvoius fact is that they are pets. They can be found at pet stores and even souvenir stores. There is an important fact that very few people know. HERMIT CRABS NEED SPECIAL CARE. MOST STORES DO NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT THEM. Here are very important facts regarding their surival as a pet. They need humidity because their special gills will dry out. The humidity shoul...
