Why Do Hermit Crabs Need Multiple Shells?
Hermit crabs need shells to shield their vulnerable abdomen and to retain moisture. Hermies can be picky about their shell and not having the right shell can cause them stress. Since hermit crabs can’t tell us what they want in a shell, it’s best to have a few options for them. That’s why our variety pack of 6 large shells is ideal. Some hermit crabs like to change shells often and some only change when they need to as a result of growth. A shell is so important, not having access to the right shell can cause aggressive behavior between hermies.
Do I Need To Prepare The Shells?
Yes. Before surprising your hermies with their new home choices, please boil them for 5 minutes, drain, and let them air dry. Our shells are sourced from the beach, so it’s wise to take precautions by boiling the shells.
Can I Paint My Shells?
You’ll paint these shells of course, but we only recommend that for crafts, not for the shells you are going to put in hermit tanks. Painted shells can chip and flake and you don’t want your hermie eating that. Our beautiful shells are one-of-a-kind and there are sure to be a few to suit your hermie’s personality, without any added paint.
