Judging by the shell. Both got the same shell, I would say these came in on a Philippines shipment.
BTW, that snail shell is mostly from there and also a predator snail.

I've never seen this hermit local, and do not find it in my books. As far as I'm concerned, it is not local, but "immigrant"
And if more that one shop got them, from old Pietersburg to Potchefstroom, then I do believe one of the wholesalers brought in a bunch of them.

I just hope they are reef save.

Jip it's a stretch.. The stores got them in on name of Clibonarias longitarsus but it doesn't match for me...
