Hermit Crabs

Stock your business with our wonderful hermit crabs. We carry a full assortment of sizes and designs of the hardy Caribbean Purple Claw Hermit Crab (coenobita clypeatus). Pet owners love the low maintenance involved with hermit crabs; they are truly easy to take care of. Many people choose to buy hermit crabs because they are the perfect first pet.

Display Cage

Display Cage

Stores owners prefer our display cages because they make it easier to sell the crabs.  The two/three separate compartments allow you to separate your crabs by price, size or kind.  It much easier to sell a crab that is climbing on the wire rather than sitting on the bottom of an aquarium, motionless.  These cages are easy to clean, simply tip on its side and rinse out.  The one-sided doors gives employees full control of who has access to the crabs.  Lastly, the  12" diameter footprint leaves plenty of room for other merchandise to be displayed.

Small Colored Cages

Wire Cages

The wire cages come in many different sizes and color combinations.  The benefit of a wire cage is it allows the crabs to climb for exercise. The raised bottom mold can holds gravel which gives the hermit crab traction. They are easy to clean and makes a great hermit crab home.
