Who’s Behind Hermit Crab Answers?

Our team is passionate about sharing their knowledge with you. Many of us already own hermit crabs and have done for years. Others work in aquatics and have spent their lives studying these fantastic creatures.

We want to share what we’ve learned to save you the hassle many of us went through when we first owned hermit crabs, leaving you with more time to spend with your pets.

Our Mission

We love hermit crabs, so it’s only natural that we want to shout it from the rooftops. There’s also a worrying lack of high-quality hermit crab resources on the internet.

Many articles and guides also offer too much misinformation, with unclear advice and inaccuracies. Hermit crabs require a high level of specialized care, and misinformed owners don’t always provide them with the environment they need to thrive.

We’re attempting to put a stop to this with expert advice and care tips that are backed up by scientific research. And, to make life easier for you, all our content is easy to read and digest.

Our Vision

Our goal is to become the number one hermit crab resource on the web, offering the most comprehensive care guides, food and diet tips, and health and wellness advice.

The Story Behind Hermit Crab Answers

“I’m Jo – it’s great to meet you. As you’ve probably already guessed, I’m nuts about hermit crabs.

My passion for these crazy crustaceans started at school when my high school science teacher kept hermit crabs as a hobby. 

He’d entertain the entire class with amusing tales about his two hermit crabs, Pinkie and Perky. I’d ask Mr. Burton to show me pictures, and I’d stay long after the bell rang to watch videos of their adventures.

When I was old enough to move into my own place, I decided to set up my own tank and added two awesome hermit crabs, named Steve and Roger (don’t ask why!). Amazingly, they’re still going strong today!

Since then, the tank has grown significantly, and I’m now the proud owner of 10 hermit crabs that I’ve accumulated over the years.

They each have their own unique personality and keep me entertained for hours with their quirky behaviors. Despite what many people might think, they seem to recognize and trust me.  

While most people choose dogs or cats as their faithful friends, hermit crabs are mine. There’s just something I like about their behavior that I find endearing!”
