    A friend at work had gotten his daughter a hermit crab for a pet.  They thought it would be cute.  After having it for 1 week the daughter got it out and it pinched her.  Then she would have nothing to do with it.  So he asked me if I would take it.  I said that I would take it.  It was in one of those plastic boxes with wood and sand from the beach in it.  They did give it water.  But there where old molded and had gnats all over them.  I was in such shock.  I had been telling him how they needed to be kept at a certain temp. and the humidity.  I am so glad he asked me to take it.
    I got him home and gave him a good bath.  I could not believe he did not have any bugs.  Now I have him in a ISO tank for a few week.  It kills me not to be able to put him in my big tat so he can have friends.  But I don't want the others to get sick if he is.
    Here are some pics of him.
