Hermit crabs dont breed in captivity, they need the ocean. But to tell, the hermie has a sack of eggs, but its different from a the sack they have when they are about to molt. Its in near the abdomen.
They don't get pregnant, all invertebrates egg-layers.
It turns out to be very easy to tell if a crab is pregnant. First, look at the crab and make sure it's a crab and not a squirrel or something. If so, it's not pregnant, because crabs don't get pregnant. They lay eggs instead.

yes a hermit crab can tell if a person is their owner or not.
Answer: Hermit crabs don't breed in captivity. If yours has babies, you could be rich for knowing how.
There are many theories, but scientists are still trying to discover that out. Since not much attention has been focused on the hermit crab
You can tell if a hermit crab is a boy or a girl by the size of their claws.
Hermit crabs have NEVER reproduced in captivity. If yours do, call the news.
you can get special dirt at the pet store, they should tell you which one is the best for your hermit crab.
A hermit crab has died if you smell dead fish and you didnt feed them sea food.
well a hermit crab is much more cuter and you can tell by the names so my advice well just look up firs a hermit crab than a rock crab on google images
You can tell a land hermit crab from a water hermit crab by looking at the claws/arms or legs. If it is a water crab it will be blueish and if land crab it will be pinkish purpleish. If your crab is a water crab don't just throw it in water and leave it there, put a tiny bowl in it's tank or cage that is low to the ground and make sure that the water level is a bit lower than the hermit crabs top of its legs. Also have a wet sponge for each kind of hermit crab in the crabs tank.
i dont think you can
The store tag
It gets fat
sand crabs have either a flat shell or no shell and hermit crabs always have a shell and plus a hermit crabs can tuck into their shells when a sand crab can't
If you smell dead fish, and you didnt put sea food in the tank than yes. Another way you can tell if a hermit crab if dead is by the claw of the hermit crab to be limp.
No. The only way to tell sex is if the crab has gonopores (two spots the size of a pinhead) on the underside of it's third pair of legs.
Scientists have been studying that question for years and still say that so far there is no way to tell with gender the hermit crab is. Also they don't know how to breed a hermit crab in captivity because the crab eggs go floating through the pcean and we don't know what mixed in with the crab's egg.

There isn't a specific male or female colors. It's very hard to tell which gender your hermit crab is
