How can you tell if your to hermit crab likes another hermit crab?
I dont think that i can know that, but i have a hermit crab and they talk with a vibration noise, like a cricket sort of! lol i hear it all the time=) so i guess thats their breeding call lol good luck!
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.
yes a hermit crab can tell if a person is their owner or not.

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.
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… Read More

A hermit crab has died if you smell dead fish and you didnt feed them sea food.
you can get special dirt at the pet store, they should tell you which one is the best for your hermit crab.
If it behaves nicely and eats normally and deosn't pinch you. How to make a hermit crab like you: feed it it's favorite food and give it lots of attention.
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.
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.
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
The store tag
i dont think you can
There isn't a specific male or female colors. It's very hard to tell which gender your hermit crab is
you can tell if your hermit crab is female or male by looking at its big claw. if the claw is a blueish purple then its female if its claw is red then its male.

If your crab is has bin living land for any period of time, it's a land crab.If your crab is has bin living in the sea for any period of time, it's a sea crab.(:
Though there are few illnesses that a hermit crab gets you can tell when your hermit crab is in distress by a few symptoms. 1. Streaking - a hermit crab does not leave it's shell unless something is wrong. 2. Dropping Limbs - this is not a normal behavior, if your hermit crab has dropped limbs something is wrong. 3. Not moving/sluggish movement. Going into a hibernative state is a reaction to something being wrong… Read More
When a hermit crab has holes near its back legs it is a female if not it is a male
There is actually no way to tell.
It will turn gray and not move for a while
If your hermit crab has just dug and hasn't resurfaced there's a good probability that it's either a digger (a crab that just likes to be under the sand) or it's molting, in which is could stay down there in either case for over a month. If your crab is on the surface, picking it up will prove whether it's dead or not. Hermit crabs that are dead will just slip out of the shell… Read More
lift your hermit crab and look at its tummy to see a dot one dot boy two dots girl no dot boy
The female land hermit crab has tiny genital openings called gonopores. The gonopores are located on the first segment of the back pair of walking legs. They are close in to the body, near the joint of the cephalothorax and abdomen. But see, the male crabs DON'T have this. so, that's how you can tell. It sounds difficult to tell the difference because you have to hold the crab close to you and look real… Read More
Despite their name, hermit crabs in nature live in rather large colonies. I'm not sure that a hermit crab has enough intelligence to be considered "lonely", but it isn't natural for them to live without other hermit crabs around.
You can tell by looking underneath the third row of legs on your hermit crab. On a female Hermit crab, there are two small holes underneath the third row of legs. These holes are called "Gonopores". On a Male hermit crab there are no holes. To check-get your hermit crab out and hold it's shell up. Make sure the shell is facing towards the ceiling and the hermit crab's body is facing torwards the floor… Read More
Answer: Hermit crabs don't breed in captivity. If yours has babies, you could be rich for knowing how.
If it is a pet, they won't. Hermit crabs lay eggs, and they do not reproduce in captivity, only the wild.
By colour and shell maybe cobnation of both.
if you gently flip over the crab, On the last set of legs, look at it. Does it have 2 dots? if it does, its a girl. If it doesnt have 2 dots, its a male.
If your hermit crab has been digging more often, eating and drinking more often, and grows a sack like bag under it's claws. NEVER dig a hermit crab up! it WILL kill them, to tell if a hermie has died you need to smell the tank, if it smells like dead fish, thema hermie is dead :(:(.
hermit crabs need a beach to lay their eggs on so they wont have babies in their cage.
Yes, because boy Hermit crabs have a purple claw
They won't move, drink, eat or use the loo.
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.
Hermit crabs are like many other animals the can get mad and scared. They also defend themselves like other animals. You can tell if your crab is really angry if he tries to pinch you.
The difference between a female hermit crab, and male hermit crab is a male has one big claw and is really purple, and a female has a big claw too but is smaller and they are red near there claws
If you look at the bottom inner stomach of a female hermit, you will see two tiny dots where eggs come out!
Well Hunny if the hermit doesnt fit in its shell,Its to small simple:) Good work
they have 2 dots under their first set of walking legs called gonopores, if they come far enough out of their shell you can tell. Males do not have the 2 dots. Sometimes your hermit crab may to shy to come far out enough for you to tell. but just be patient with it. ;)
You can tell if a hermie crab is dead by smelling the tank, if it smells like dead fish then a hermies dead...
In order to see the sex of a hermit crab, it would need to come almost all the way out of its shell. Females have gonopores, or a small opening near the base of the tail.
They don't get pregnant, all invertebrates egg-layers.
You see if it has a penis or a vagina. Happy hermit crabbing.
Remember that hermit crabs take very tiny "bites" of their food and like variety, so try giving him different foods until he finds something he likes. He may be eating and you just can't tell.
It's pretty hard to tell if your crab is unhappy. If your crab isn't coming out at night nor when you give him/her a bath, he/she MIGHT be unhappy, or that crab might jus be shy. If you find detached legs or hermit crab body parts, that might be another sign your crab is unhappy. Just make sure your tank is the right temperature and humidity level. And make sure theres plenty of food and… Read More
I have had a hermit crab molt before and you can tell if it is dead if the tank smells like dead fish. hermit crabs molt underground and stay in there for a week to months. make sure it always has fresh water available. It is very important for newly molted hermit crabs to be hydrated.
