Hermit crab eggs look similar to some fish eggs. Thousands of eggs are laid along the left side of the female's abdomen. The female will carry them for about a month. The eggs will gradually turn gray. The female will go to the ocean and deposit the eggs into the water.

How do you tell if a hermit crab is a boy or girl?

Take one of you hermit crabs out of it's cage. Hold it's shell in the air. The hermit crab will be dangling out of it's shell. The hermit crab's head should be facing down at the ground, and the shell should be in the grasp of your fingers facing up at the ceiling. Your hermit crab should be dangling upsidown. While the hermit crab is like this, you will be able to see its stomach. Look at the 2nd row of legs (NOT including the claws.). If its a girl, there will be two small holes that look like small dots on that second row of legs. If it is a boy, there will be no holes. These holes are called "gonopores". You can look up a picture of the gonopores so you will know what they look like before you start checking your hermit crabs. It helps a lot to know what they actually look like before you start looking to see if the crab is a male or female.
