HELP very large hermit crab in need of shell.

Post by rockychloe22 »

My hermit crab is very large and has a painted shell that is too small for him. Im not sure where i can find a natural shell with a 3-4 inch opening online. Worried if I don't get him a bigger shell soon it'll hurt him! Thanks.

I have a crab that size I recently bought shells for. I got them on eBay. Ana-Grace and the others prefer pentholatus shells and fox shelld. Are you in Australia? I could maybe send you a few if you can't get shells in eBay or Amazon. There are also hermit crab shops that sell shells. Let me know! -Carrie
