About Us

Since 1975, animal lovers all over the country have trusted Shell Shanty for hermit crabs. Our owners, Martha and William, originally founded the company as a retail store. In 1985, we shifted our focus to wholesale operations. As wholesalers, we combine our knowledge of retail processes and the wholesale environment to bring our customers the best quality products. As leaders in the industry, we have been the innovators of the major products on the market today. We have even built our own hermit crab facilities offshore. Shell Shanty is licensed as direct importers by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. The next time you need anything hermit crab-related, depend on us and our four decades of experience.


Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
