Please allow up to 2 weeks for your order to be processed and shipped. During the winter and summer months, live orders may be delayed further if the weather is too cold or too hot to ship. Our main concern is the safety of the crabs. Once you place an order, it will be processed electronically and handled by a live hermit crab specialist.

Please note that we are currently undergoing a change in management and location. We are working very hard to catch up on old orders, as well as process all the new orders coming in. We are going to be changing our shipment methods as well. The current shipping method will be ground shipping for dry goods and supplies, and Post Office Express for live orders, with a $15 flat shipping fee per order. This ensures that the crabs will get to your destination within 48 hours, and still remain affordable. This fee is subject to change at anytime but for now, this will cover both the shipping for crabs and dry goods (supplies). Please email us with any concerns you may have before or after you place your orders. Thank you for shopping with us.
