Habitat: Terrestrial Hermit Crabs are native to tropical coastal regions and can be found in various parts of the world, including the Caribbean, the Indo-Pacific, and other coastal areas. They are known for their habit of using empty seashells as portable shelters. In captivity, providing them with a suitable habitat is essential. This includes a terrarium with a substrate like coconut coir, sand, or a mixture of both, along with seashells of various sizes for them to choose from as homes.

Temperature and Humidity: Terrestrial Hermit Crabs require a warm and humid environment. The temperature in their enclosure should be maintained between 75 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit (24 to 29 degrees Celsius), and the humidity level should be around 70% to 80%. A heat source, such as an under-tank heater, may be necessary to maintain the temperature.

Diet: Terrestrial Hermit Crabs are omnivorous scavengers. They eat a variety of foods, including commercial hermit crab food, fresh fruits, vegetables, and small amounts of protein sources like cooked meat or seafood. Providing a balanced diet is crucial for their health and well-being.

Molting: Hermit crabs molt as they grow, shedding their exoskeleton. During this time, they are vulnerable, and their behavior may change. Providing them with a safe, quiet space and maintaining high humidity levels during molting is essential.

-They may also engage in shell-swapping, where they find new shells to move into as they grow
