Hermit crabs can make a great pet. They are a much lower maintenance pet than a cat or dog, and unlike fish you can interact with them and don't need to worry about things such as the pH level in the water. Once the initial setup is out of the way, they're cheap to look after too!

Taking care of your new hermit crab

What do hermit crabs need?

Warmth: hermit crabs are sensitive to the cold.
Fresh water: for drinking. This should be changed regularly.
Salt water: for cleaning them. To clean them, put them in a very small amount of salt water. They should be able to climb out, which they will do almost immediately.

Famous Crabs

If it strikes your fancy, you could name one of your crabs after a famous crab. I honestly couldn't think of very many- if you can think of others, leave a comment below!

  • Mr. Krabs from Spongebob Squarepants
  • Sebastian from the Little Mermaid
  • Cancer, after the star sign and constellation
  • Ms. Krabapel (okay, she's not a crab in the literal sense of the word. But she's got the word 'crab' in her name and being Bart Simpson's teacher has made her very well known. And she's crabby. So she's on the list!)
