Welcome to the definitive resource on land hermit crabs! “The Complete Guide to Land Hermit Crabs and Their Care: Changing the Mindset of Hermit Crab Keeping” is an invaluable companion for anyone intrigued by these fascinating creatures. Authored by Stacy Griffith, an authority in the field and president of the Land Hermit Crab Owners Society, this book is the culmination of over two decades of dedicated research and hands-on experience.

Hermit crabs of the Coenobita species possess a remarkable biology and longevity. With proper care, they can thrive for decades in captivity. However, their needs are often misunderstood or underestimated. This comprehensive guide sheds light on their intricate requirements, emphasizing that hermit crabs aren’t disposable pets or suitable for young children. Rather, they are complex exotic creatures deserving of a specialized environment to flourish.

Within these pages, you’ll delve into the fundamental biology of land hermit crabs, complemented by vivid full-color images that bring their world to life. The book follows the esteemed care guidelines established by the Land Hermit Crab Owners Society, supported by extensive research data on decapod crustaceans. From understanding their nutritional necessities, feeding them from your pantry, to selecting the right shells and managing potential issues like molting, ant invasions, and shell abandonment, every aspect of responsible hermit crab ownership is covered.

This guide doesn’t stop at basic care. It also includes a dedicated chapter on breeding, insights into ongoing captive breeding projects, and a resource section brimming with valuable links. Stacy Griffith’s expertise, stemming from her tenure as the president of LHCOS and the owner of The Crab Street Journal, is evident in her dedication to advancing the welfare of hermit crabs. Her mission is clear: to alter misconceptions surrounding these creatures and ensure they thrive in captivity for years, not just survive for a brief period.

If you’re ready to embark on a journey toward transforming your land hermit crab into a healthy, thriving companion, this book is an absolute must-have. Get your copy now and embark on a fulfilling and informed experience of caring for these captivating creatures!
