You can tell if a hermit crab is a boy or a girl by the size of their claws.
There is actually no way to tell.
Yes, because boy Hermit crabs have a purple claw
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.
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.
They get visited by a stork.
With a girl you will find a line of eggs along her side and with the boy you will find nothing
You see if it has a penis or a vagina. Happy hermit crabbing.
well when a boy and a girl hermit crab are adults put them together and eventually they will reproduce
i dont think you can
the way you check if a hermit crab is a boy or girl is you look under their third pair of legs and if there are two holes there its a girl
There are theories on how to tell, but scientists havnt took any interest in studying them, so we dont know for certain how to tell.
in the very back section of your hermit crabs back look to see if it has 4 holes if it does its a girl if not a boy
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.
Under their back legs there are dots. If there are dots its a girl if there aren't its a boy.
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
See related link below for the answer.
you could tell by the color of its big claw or behind its feet is two holes it is a girl
No, but here's a page with pictures of male and female crabs and how to sex them. http://www.thecrabbagepatch.com/crabanatomy.html
the girl has 3 holes in the back section
The girl has three holes
Only females can, but it takes a male to fertilize them!
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. while the hermit crab is dangling upsidown you are able to see underneath the legs where the gonopores might be. And remember: No gonopores=MALE.....gonopores=FEMALE Hope this helps! :)
you need to wait for it to come all the way out and flip it slowely and gently and check for gonepores little dots on the abdomen if they have them its a girl. If they dont its a boy. (I have 2 both are boys)
