Hi there! Welcome to this new post! Here, I will be showing you an odd kind of pet, by the name of Hermit Crab! Hermit crabs are crustaceans, similar to marine crabs. They carry water within their shells to survive long days without water. The reason why they are called hermit crabs is because they live in shells, and when they outgrow the shell, they would leave in favor of another, larger shell that would snugly fit it.
I have a single hermit crab, and its home is a dry aquarium, filled with various shells. I haven’t thought of a name for the little critter yet, though. It eats fish food scattered around its environment, and drinks water from a small bottle cap that I regularly refill.
Hermit crabs are surprisingly great pets! They are hardy, easy to maintain, and (usually) cheap! They only require a bit of food (usually fish food) and some water. They may not be the cutest of pets (some people may even see them as anathema) but they will serve as an excellent silent companion.
If you need a pet, but don’t have the time or money for a dog, cat, or bird, a hermit crab might be just what you need! Thank you for taking the time to read all this. If you enjoyed the post, please leave a like and a comment below. Goodbye!
