Hermit crabs (affectionately called hermies) are great pets to have. They may not be as cute or cuddly as a puppy, but they are fun to play with and will teach kids the meaning of caring for another living being.
Hermit crabs make an easy pet for kids. I had never considered a hermit crab for a pet at all until our children were gifted two crabs.
Friends! I'm sure you've heard this before, but you really shouldn't keep only one hermit crab alone as a pet. The name 'hermit' is misapplied to our little friends -- they are quite gregarious.
Hermit crabs are very active and nice animals. Doing things with your hermit crab once in a while is a great way to gain trust from your crabby little friend.
Hey beautiful people :) This is a fun little video of how I "meal prep" for my hermit crabs for the week.
