    I Am So Glad My Son Talked Me Into Getting Hermit Crabs

    Stella And Hermy

    Stella was female and Hermy was male. Stella was mine and Hermy was my little sisters, mine killed hers when it was switching shells (no shell to protect it from my wittle Stella). Stella died just before the new year :(.

    I Have 4

    They are so cute, when they walk they look like little crawling babies with bulging diapers.  They're low maintinence too, they eat peanut butter and jelly and love mac & cheese.
