Dear All,

Well, after 3 of my hermit crabs died, I thought that Hermione wouldn't last but after waiting a month, she's still alive, so I decided to get another hermit crab to keep her company. I've named the new hermy Remus (after Remus Lupin in the Harry Potter series).

I really can't tell between the males and the females and also wonder if they have both sexes like snails. And it gets confusing sometimes as they keep switching shells. But I'm glad they're both so active.

Well, I hope they have a long and happy life!

Hugs,

Elaine

Land Hermit Crabs are not like snails.. Here is a link on how to tell the difference between a male and a female. Hope it helps you!
