I figured it may be interesting to see where everyone stands in their hermit crab experience. I mean as far as how long you have owned them and any other stats you can offer. (ie. successful molts, death count number of crabs when started and now. etc etc.) I have had my crabs for almost 5 months now.. started with 5 now have 7. I have not had any moults yet, nor any deaths, but countless shell changes. I read about their care before I got them, so I knew what I was getting myself into. I thank God for the Internet as all the books but one is terribly out-dated and full of misinformation. I have been surprised that some of the sites have not been updated as often as they should, that is why I like forum based sites, more than the standard web-site, though I have found a few that are quite good. So what about you?? I am quite interested in knowing about the site owners expertise, as I assume he must know a great deal being he runs a site dedicated to these guys. I have not found an intro thread on him, but I may have missed it. So, everyone, including Jason, how long have you owned your crabbies ? (just thought this may be fun) Kev.
