Cavipes Hermit Crab (Coenobita Cavipes)



Cavipies are omnivorous animals and mainly eat fruits. They do not chirp and until recently, Violas were mistaken for Cavapies. We recommend using sand and coconut fiber substrate for them to dig and molt in. Always have additional shells available for your crabs to switch into. If you have any questions, please email us and we will respond. You can also connect with us in Live Chat if we are online.

We require overnight shipping to guarantee 100% live Delivery. If your crab does not arrive safely, please contact us immediately. Your live hermit crab is specially packed and shipped to you, usually arriving within 2 weeks of your order depending upon weather conditions.

ALL OF OUR HERMIT CRABS ARE SHIPPED IN A BOX WITH WET MOSS, A SPONGE AND A SNACK. WE PACK WITH HEAT PACKS OR ICE PACKS WHEN NEEDED. THE BOX IS THEN PLACED IN A STYROFOAM LINED SHIPPING BOX. We recommend someone be present to accept the delivery and get the crab in a suitable habitat as soon as possible.
