Hello! I'm new here. My name is Kristen, and I'm from Louisiana. It seems like my hermit crabs have been grooming me for this forum. I got my first hermie in Galveston, TX on the boardwalk (where a lot of us tend to start out). I grabbed him up and happily walked off thinking how cute he was in his tiny, plastic box. His name is Galvin. I got home the next night from vacation and looked up hermit crab care on the internet. BOY what a surprise! Needless to say, I ran out that night and bought him some nice calcium rich sand, a 10 gallon tank, some choyo wood, etc. He now also has a friend named Exxon. We acquired him from a local store as a friend for Galvin after finding out they like to have at least one friend. Galvin is a year and a half old, Exxon is 1 year, 2 months old (since I got them, at least. I know they're older xD). I love them, and they are HIGHLY spoiled. Those little buggers even crawl on my lap while I'm on the computer! Just wanted to introduce myself and my little hermies. I'm sure you'll all hear quite a bit about them!
