Land Hermit Crabs, are one of the most popular and easy to care for pets available today. These crustaceans are very clean, and can become very friendly once they get to know you. Hermit Crabs tend to sleep during the day and play at night. The warmer their environment the more active they will be.

Hermit Crabs are social and live in large groups in the wild and are therefore best kept in groups of three or more.

Wonderfully healthy hermit crabs delivered to South East Qld within a day of ordering (before 7.30am). I ordered a small & medium. Price very good compared to local pet stores. Packaged well. Would definitely recommend.

Crabs arrived live and well despite a delay in the post (not sellers fault). Communication could have been better when crabs failed to arrive - floods in our area delayed the courier and there was an issue with tracking numbers. Thankfully even with a big 5 day wait in the post the Hermies arrived safe.

Very happy with our crabs, we ordered 2 more (this product review) they're larger then the first 3 we purchased ment to me same sizing. 1 crab went under to molt straight away so bearly seen him :( the other followed 2 days later. Happy to be in their new habitat can't wait till they surface again. would highly recommend petwave to friends and family and beyond. Postage was super fast animals arrived looking healthy and well. :) Cheers.
