  • Pacnchance says:

    I have 6. The first two I just named when I woke from a dream. ABBY & BREE. I decided to go with female names, cuz all the rest of the arc is male. When I looked them up under baby names, I found their names fit the perfectly! ABBY means “Bringer of joy” in Hebrew, and she really is a chirping blast! Bree means “hill” in Irish, & that gal is a climber!! I realized I was going alphabetical at that point, so: Caileigh: “party” in Gailic… & that she is! Dae: “Greatness” in Korean, & she is a wonderful & sweet little girl! EFF: done as a joke…get it? But it means: “pretty in the face” in Greek & that she is!! As soon as I got her into the crabitat, she swapped her plain beige shell for a super funky green turbo! & last but not least… We have Fraya: “Nobel woman”, Norwegian. Ummm… She is hysterical… Not sure about Nobel, but I love her & the rest of the gals SO MUCH!!!

"This book is very helpful for both the novice and experienced owner. I personally like to learn as much as I can on my pets.

This book explains the background of the species as well as how to care for them properly.

I hope someday people will start realizing that hermit crabs ARE NOT disposable pets that are meant to live in a little plastic container with a cm of sand.

They are so interesting little pets and can live a very long time if taken care of properly."
"I purchased this book as a gift for a friend who had just rescued a hermit crab from a content sale. She tried her best to save the little guy, but it didn't seem like things were going well.

Thanks to this book, she's been able to nurse Roger back to life. He's now an active, entertaining and engaging pet. With a much better quality of life than his little plastic box. If you've got crabs, buy this book. "
"Awesome guide! I bought this book and WOW, it totally helped me to take care of Robby.

This book tells you all that you need to know to raise your crabs in a healthy and happy environment, so that they can live happily ever after! "
