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

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

He entertained the entire class with amusing tales about his two hermit crabs. 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 set up my own tank and added two fascinating hermit crabs (Steve and Roger). Amazingly, they’re still alive today.

Since then, the tank has grown, and I’m now the proud owner of 14 hermit crabs.

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