Ask Milo – Finding a lost hermit crab

Hermit Crab101 asks:

My crab escaped yesterday night and I have no clue where he is I am a “newbie” to hermit crabs and have not seen him really eat anything or any bite marks in the morning. I even gave him walnuts! Still nothing So how should I find him and what should I feed him.

This happens so much we have and FAQ devoted to it: Find my lost hermit crab

We also have a starter list of things your hermit crab can eat: What foods are good or bad for my hermit crab to eat?

Good Luck!
