    Hello! I'm new, as you can tell, and I wanted to introduce myself before I started my panic post that will probably appear within the next few minutes. It seemed like common courtesy.

    My name is Winter (...obviously that's my real name...obviously...) I am seventeen years old, living in Pennsylvania. I'm completely in love with animals and have always wanted a cat and a rabbit, but it seems everyone but me is allergic so no can do. I have two dogs, one beta fish (technically my step-dad's) and three hermit crabs. Their names are (from biggest to smallest) Gwendal, Jupiter and Pietro Tyson. The last one has two names, Pietro because he's stupidly fast and Tyson because even though he's the smallest he still marched around trying knocking everyone over (and he seems to fall and roll every five seconds). It doesn't really work but it doesn't stop him from trying.

    I got the hermit crabs recently on my vacation to Cape May. I won't ask advice now or get into the details of how I fail at life just yet. That can come after I've introduced myself. So yes...hi! This seemed like a good community for hermit crabs, and I'm going to need all the support I can get! I hope we can get along as I love hermit crabs and am determined to get this right. There's just so much more to it then you'd expect!

    Welcome! This forum has enough people that you'll get your questions answered quickly and correctly, but not so much people that you won't be able to get to know anyone. In other words, it's(arguably) the best hermit crab forum on the internet:D!

    :eek: Well it's definitely the best I've seen, and I think I've been reading around...five or six hermit crab forums simultaneously since I got them. According to my mom I've officially fallen off the deep end into Hermit Land. Yay me!

    Ha, well autumn is awesome too. I just love winter because someone has to. It's really a very under appreciated season you see.

    I've never met anyone named Autumn or Winter, but I met someone named Summer once. :D

    No, no pics yet I'm afraid. I don't have a camera of my own and I haven't been able to borrow one until now. Won't do me much good though considering they've all buried themselves LOL. And it's ok, we can be weird together. Winter is my favorite season too.
