Hermit Crabs Exoskeletons Hello Mr. I purchased 6 blue leg hermit crabs about a month ago, and today found what I believe to be two molted exoskeletons and everything I’ve read refers to them as such, but always prefaced with ‘probably’. A quick count of moving Herpes-Dating-Seiten shells re-affirmed that there were no dead crabs, however, is there any solid way to tell the difference between an exoskeleton and a dead crab asides from this slow method? Thanks for your help, Josh

Crabs entertain so many different aquatic niches

Help. Hermit crabs I need some advice. My co-worker brought back some hermit crabs as a gift that he found on a beach in Gulfport. He brought them as a gag but I was dead serious about taking care of them. I filled an aquarium with sand and plants and did the whole sponge and pellet thing since he said they were land critters. They weren’t moving and a couple actually died. I had no idea what to do. My husband said they were probably sick and suffering and to put them in water and let them die in water as they were meant to. Turned out once in water they stared walking around, swapping shells, etc. They are obviously aquatic crabs, They have hairy striped legs and are pretty aggressive to each other. What the heck do I do now? I have no idea. Please help me with anything you can. I live in Arizona. I could always take them to California. I’d appreciate anything you could tell me. Barbara
