Hi Peanut - there are some types of shells which you can indeed pick up. The periwinckle type shells are favoured by hermit crabs - as the shells are very smooth on the inside, and their bodies usually fits nicely into this shell type....I would like to hi-jack the thread a bit.
I read that I need to provide bigger shells for hermit to grow into.
Mine is about 1.5cm shell currently, but I see he is getting to big for his shell.
Can I use a shell I picked up off beach, or do they need specific shells?
