    Hi everyone, I found a LAND hermit crab on the reefs in St Lucia, KZN.
    I travelled with him to JHB and he stayed alive for 19 days. He unfortunately died due to me leaving him in his tank in the sun for longer than 3 hours (I was trying to bring the tank to 70% humidity) - I suspect he over heated and died because when I found him he had left his shell and the side of the tank was pretty wet/humid/HOT.
    I'm shattered and was looking forward to him grow and living long - anyone know of these hermit crabs and if you have one that you are willing to sell/donate? Responses would be appreciated.

    Are you sure he hasn't just molted and is in hiding?

    Nope, I found him on the surface and left him in the cage for 2more days incase he decided to wake up and climb back into his shell. His tail began turning black so that's how I knew.

    Pet Stop in Gezina Pretoria got 2. They need a special setup as they spend a lot of time out of the water.
