Key To SurvivalFRIENDS ARE IMPORTANT
Contrary to their name hermit crabs are very social animals.
At The Hermit Crab Patch we will not sell a single crab unless we know they are going home to be with friends. When a hermit crab lives alone they tend to become very inactive and have a shortened life span. In the wild they reside in large colonies. In captivity they tend to congregate in piles, usually in the corner of the cage.
