  1. That is so cute!!!
    Yes, you can buy them as pets; have had to talk himself out of it a few times over the years.
    I sometimes think I am a human hermit crab….


  2. How do people keep hermit crabs as pets? Keeping a marine aquarium going and the animals healthy is really difficult. A hermit crab is for life – not just for Christmas – and the crab’s life is likely to be very short if kept as a pet, surely?
