Do hermit crabs kill other hermit crabs?
Of course not, They're friendly creatures unless they feel threatened, they may pinch. If they do start fighting or pinching each other, remove the other one A.S.A.P as he could kill the other crab. They may be small but they are tough and strong. I hope some of this advice helped, As I have hermit crabs too. I hope this helped you.
Hermit crabs do not 'go to the bathroom'. In other words hermit crabs DO NOT POO. I have had hermit crabs, and I know they definitely don't poo. Hermit crabs use all the energy and nutrients from their food and turn it into vitamins for the body. Hermit crabs are great pets, as there is no stinky poo to clean out!!!
What I do for my hermit crabs is I take a shallow hermit crab dish (found at pet stores), fill it with fresh NATURAL SPRING WATER (all other water will kill crabs. trust me!), and put in a hermit crab sponge (also found at pet stores). This way they can pleasantly have their NATURAL SPRING WATER (remember that!) without drowning.
No. Hermit crabs have modified gills, meaning that they need 70-80% humidity in order to breath. However hermit crabs cannot breath under water; they will drown. It is important to have the humidity between 70-80% so the hermit crab can properly breath. Smoke is toxic to hermit crabs and will eventually kill them.
hermit crabs will eat anything but do not give them anything will butter on it it will kill them hermit crabs eat food by pinching the food and pulling it towards it mouth which is hidden to where we can't can't see them. that is why some people get pinched, the crabs think there is food on your hand and pinch
no because male hermit crabs and femail hermit crabs will fight with each other or other male or femail's over space,if they have a little space and arround 50 hermit crabs there will be fights.i don't want to give you the wrong image but if they have little space and 2-15 there will proubably be no fights.
Not if they're land hermit crabs. And probably not if they're saltwater/freshwater hermit crabs. Land hermit crabs will drown in water over their eyes. Water hermit crabs might fight or try to eat your goldfish and the bacterias from both animals will hurt the other animals. It's better to keep them in separate tanks.
Hermit crabs can snap a pencil in two! Hermit crabs have been abused by PEOPLE and STILL ARE! :( :( Hermit crabs are not easy pets to take care of hermit crabs molt ( research more about it) Hermit crabs need 70 - 80% / F , Humidity and temp Hermit crabs LOVE to climb trees! Hermit crabs are very social get at least 2! hermit crabs get their names cause of the 1 shell…
