I GOT A HERMIT CRAB!

He's not very social, I think he just needs to get used to his new home.

He hasn't eaten anything yet either (it's been almost a day), i'm kinda worried. =(

Anyone have any tips on keeping these as pets/raising them?

  7. never had one, but my unprofessional advise is take it slow, ease into it, he'll start eating soon just dont try too hard.

  8. Animals like this get stressed easily :( He/she probably just needs to settle. What does it eat? Is it similar to its Pacific Cousins, cause crabs are bottom feeders! yuck!

  14. If you leave food and don't interact with him much he will eventually eat. He's scared of his new environment!
