Your hermit crab is out of its shell and wont move?
Your hermit crab is probably dead.
no but it will be when you wont put that thing back on its shell using your own bare hands
hermit crabs are very pickey about there new domane or house put more than one shell in the cage.:)
the hermit crab would start to fall out of its shell an you will see his legs coming out and will pop out if i was you dont try it Well it wont die, it should just walk around.
You will know your hermit crab is dead when it smells horrible (dead person horribe) you could also tap its claw to see if its moving (they usually react to that) you could also feel the top of their shell . If their moving but wont come out 1.their alive 2.their probably molting (when a hermit crab is molting don't pick it up or play with it) you could also tell by tipping it over… Read More
It could be because the shell is dirty, to small or searching for a new one. Hermit crabs are always in their shells. Hermit crabs will never leave their shells unless switching. IF your hermit crab is running around without it's shell there is something wrong with it. Answer This could be because it has outgrown its shell and is searching for a larger one. A tight-fitting shell stunts the crab's growth, making it easier… Read More
if he/she wont move on his/her own and will not eat as much as it used to. HOPE ITS OKAY :)
first of all hermit crabs shed their whole body. not just one part. if it does molt; it wont move for a while and then it will eat it
Well some Hermit crabs dont come out of their shell DURING THE DAY!!!!!!!My hermit crab likes to come out of its shell during night, crabs also like the outside!!!!!. try taking it out side for a while but not if its to cold!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Take it out during a warm day..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But some hermit crabs cant go in the heat or cold it is best to keep them in side like my hermit crabs sleeps a lot… Read More
I'm no expert, but maybe it doesn't like the shell. Maybe it's too small, large, smells funny, whatever. Get more shells and give it some choice.
hermit crabs need a beach to lay their eggs on so they wont have babies in their cage.
When hermit crabs are under stress or sick they may lose legs or claws. An example of this is also when a predator catches a crab by a limb the crab will release the said limp to escape danger. Some crabs may lose a leg or claw when molting. Tyson in Tampa. my sons hermit crab just lost all of its legs .we accidently left him all night in the sink and apparently he was… Read More
If your question is "Why wont your hermit crab eat". - Your hermit crab IS eating. hermit crabs are nocturnal animals (like bats). They mostly like to come out of their hiding place at night. So when you're sleeping, they are having a party, eating & drinking their fresh and salt water.
You should actually let your crab alone. Because sometimes if you put a hermit crab under the sand he wont know and will probably die from dehydration or hunger. The best thing to do would be to put something that will divide the hermit crab who is molting from the others so they will all leave him/her while she or he is molting.
How do you know if your hermit crab is healthy after molting before he was red and purple now he is a real ashy purple so what does this mean?
This is nothing bad usually hermit crabs change colors so if your hermit crab is ashy purple theres nothing to worry about it wont burn in flames
IF YOUR HERMIT CRAB WON'T EAT-If you're hermit crab won't eat give it some time or try diffrent foods. Trustme it has happened to me many times! HERMIT CRAB FOOD ADVICE-Some good things to feed your hermit crabs are shredded/ chopped carrots. They will eat about any fruit that isn't acidy like lemons, oranges, pinapple ect. Change they're un-eaten food everyday to avoid mould of sickness.
You cant really get it out. If it wont come out it is most likely sleeping or maybe its new to its home and needs to get used to it. My hermit crab only comes out when its alone and if you come in slowely it will stay out. On the other hand my sisters crab comes out if you just get a squirt bottle and lightly spray it. It really depends on your crab… Read More
Your crab being naked could be a sign of one of many things. It could mean he is sick, didn't like his shell or the choices of shells you provide, about to molt, or that the tank environment is too harsh. The most you can do really is just keep offering him shells. But if the crab has been naked for a week, there isn't much hope. Unshelled for that long usually means they are… Read More
well if its not eating its sick and if it gose a long time whit out eating it will get weak and it wont eat
If you can no longer keep your pet hermit crab take it to a low tide beach and if you live near a beach where it came from its perfect i live in Arizona but mine is from the carribbean so i hope i wont get rid of it soon xD
You could eat hermit crabs but would you want to plus if you eat one you will get no nutrition from it but you wont die?? I mean if you had one for a pet then you just ate it that would be pretty gross, if you think about it Yes, a hermit crab could be eaten. However, most people have hermit crabs for pets.
you can try dipping it in its water, sometimes they will come out, if no, it may be preparing to shed its skin, if that's the case it might need to be in there to prepare for the upcoming event, they are funny creatures, and just do there thing, chill if its still alive he knows hat its doing
hermit cabs are nocturnal animals so our day is their night. try talking to it all the time and maybe it will come out. mine wont come out either but i keep talking to it and shes coming out more. my brothers comes out all the time and mine stays in so they have different types. sometimes they are active at the store and when you get home they stay in their shell(like mine) there… Read More
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.
You can help them by letting them be and not moving them or trying to dig them up.this is bccc123 and i want to say that you can help them,you should dip them in water then put them in a boul or something like that with a bigger shell so it wont be bothered by anything and it will know to molt into that shell.
Well you can tell if, it wont eat and doesnt move around just stay still, and sometimes not come out of its shell
while the crab is pinching you, pretty much the only thing you can do is wait. don't scare it, try to force it off, and definitly don't run it under the sink water. all these will just stress the crab out and make it pinch harder. there is no need to take it back if that was the first time it pinched if it keeps pinching and wont let go spray it gently with the… Read More
Yea, but they probably wont play back :P
My answer to this is yes of what i seen yes they are. hermit crabs cant look down so if you do put them on something make sure they wont fall.
I have no idea my brother completed it but he wont tell me!
they have ears but there on the inside of there head so if you rub there head you wont feel them but there there and they can hear you
get a bowl of water and put them in there. trust me they wont hatch if there's no water
Well i really don't kno wat 2 say cuz i had 1 that his claw fell off if ur crab wont move , rattles wen you shake him ,and stinks its probably dead. im sorry but if it just happened that his claw fell off keep him in a separate tank away from ur other crabz and just watch him he might grow a new claw or ready 2 molt
girlz are afraid of rejection so boys usually make the first move u say it first and kiss her then shell say it
no it wont it will just turn into a slug
has five pairs of legs to move very fast ten eyes so it can see very well has a hard shell so wont get it eaten alive
because they usually wont get enough food from their owner and sometimes they go into shock ....
I dont think so but big fish might be able to but they prob wont
this wont be helpful but dose is supposed to be spelled does :P
hermit crabs are not scary. but some people might think they look scary. but hermit crabs make good pets for most people. people might think they look scary because their big claws but they wont hurt you. but if you hurt it it might hurt you.
Is it too cold for it? (Is the turtle warm)
Hermit crabs will eat more drink more and bath in the SEA salt more they will grow a sack under its arm that has the food it will need when it undergoes this process. Then they will bury itself DO NOT dig them up! If you think they are dead and your tank smells like dead fish then it is dead. Hermit crabs molting can take from weeks to months. When it comes out of… Read More

The bird is scared.
dude, its sleeping
Hermit crabs are nocturnal, and so they are out of their tanks at night, sometimes I wake up in middle of night and look at them, and there they are on the climbing things. I wake up and it looks like they have never been there.
You gotta move out.. move back in with your parents so he can't move back in with you.
I guess they do.. There is no reason that they wont move... They are not a lazy animal i suppose...
