Going away in January for 9 days

Post by ferne1973 »

Hello all,

I have just joined this forum and wondering if there is anyone in Brisbane who may be interested in caring for our hermit crab whilst we are away? He is a single hermit crab for the time being until I return from my trip. I am going away for 9 nights from Jan 11 - 20th. I live on the South-west side of Brisbane (inala) and am not confident to place too much responsibility on my friends as I have learned that these little creatures are quite fragile. Would love to know if there is a community set up for crab-sitting in the area?

Thanks in anticipation for your response!!

Warmest regards,

Ferne1973

Welcome! I'm not from Brisbane, but if anyone comes to mind, I'll let you know.

Hi Wai! Thanks for that. I have a friend who is willing to take our little hermie in for the duration which is comforting. Still, if anyone does come to mind or have an interest I would prefer to have someone who is familiar with crab care to make it easier. Thanks!!

Don't stress too much as long as your friend knows what to do. Nine days is not a very long time (I usually leave mine with carers for at least three weeks at a time).
