Hermit crabs are called hermits because they do not have a permanent home; instead switching their shells when they out grow them. It is important to know that hermit crabs are actually quite social creatures, and in the wild live in colonies of as many as 100 crabs! They actually do not like to live alone, so it is important to buy at least 2 when you start out. Your crab can actually die of loneliness!
Beware that not all species of hermies can co-habitate peacefully; so be sure to check for species compatibility before adding to your colony!
