lilcrabbygal: Keeping and breeding land hermit crabs

A booklet by Stu Wools-Cobb on Keeping and breeding land hermit crabs.


Hello. My name is Vanessa Pike-Russell. Stu Wools-Cobb visited my website on land hermit crab care
and emailed me after reading my caresheet on gender and reproduction. At the time it had been unheard

juvenile (air-breathing) stage of development. read more...Collapse )

I am looking for someone that is willing to take in 3 extra crabbies. I do have a crabitat and food all avaialble for them. I am moving out of state and can't bring them with and so I am looking for anyone in the San Diego California area that would take in extra babies, no charge.

please hit me up with an email, as I will most likely not get back to livejournal for a while now.
