The Strawberry Hermit Crab is one of the most beautiful hermit crab species that you can have as a pet. They prefer larger shells and can grow to a length of up to 5 inches from claw to tail! They are clean, safe to handle and can live for years with the proper care and treatment. Strawberries REQUIRE access to a full dish of salt water at all times as they cannot regulate their body’s salt level without it. We recommend using sand and coconut fiber substrate for them to dig and molt in. They require sea water as they live near the beach and used to drink sea water. They are clean, safe to handle and can live for years with the proper care and treatment. We recommend using sand and coconut fiber substrate for them to dig and molt in. We do NOT recommend plastic critter cages as a permanent home as it will not hold the temperature and humidity at the levels they need. 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.
