    Does anyone live in the Charlotte NC area and have crabs they are trying to find new homes for?

    :D LOL!! I didn't realize there were this many in NC on here this is Awesome.

    Also Hermez I agree, I was in Mooresville (an hour away) yesterday and it was the same lousy conditions as Gastonia.:( (I posted about that in the petsmart thread) There is also a place called Heaven on Earth, and they are the ones who said to keep them in a bird cage...:mad:

    Anywoo I'm glad to see all of you are located in NC, it's nice to have people so close to you, OK well at least in the same state:p...LOL!

    Yay! So glad I posted this... but so sad to see no one with crabs for adoption. I just can't stand getting them at Petsmart. The one by me has them on gravel and they just leave the dead ones in the cage. Just disgusting. I saw that the crabbage patch sells them online and ships them to you but I just don't believe I can afford overnight shipping.

    Guess what?!?!:confused: I did as suggested and I listed on craigslist that I was looking to adopt hermies and I am going to pick up 10 new babies Wednesday night, I am so excited I almost peed myself!!:D
    I also saw where there was someone giving one away in Fort Mill, but was to late someone had already got him. That was before someone contacted me about the ones I am picking up. Of course my message got flagged and removed but luckily not before someone saw it!!
    So now I am setting up my 2 - 20 gallons and I am going to use one as the new ISO. My other babies just moved up to a 20 gallon also, they love the extra space. Bam Bam went down the same night and I haven't seen him since:( I miss him...

    I feel the same as you, every time I go in a petsmart it is sad, I have other animals ( Bailey a boxer, Aticus a German Shepard, and several fish) that I have to shop for and I try not to even look at them, however I always find myself right there. As for the shipping I know I can't afford it right now, my son is going back to school, my 2 yr old will be 3 in November, and then of course all the up coming holidays. Maybe when income tax comes in. I would really love to have a variety of the different hermies!!

    I am in Mooresville, NC above Charlotte and I just got 2 hermies off of Craigslist. Poor guys they were owned by a girl (probably around 11 or 12) and she had them in a dreaded wire cage. :eek: It made me so sad to see them in that condition. Other than that they seem to be in good shape and I'm looking forward to having them meet my other 2 guys.

    Thanks Stephen, I'm not sure what size they were in b4, I picked them up and they were in the plastic container you see them in, they are now in a 20 gallon and lovin it!:D Most are small to medium, there are a couple tiny ones. I still haven't gotten my two Jumbos yet I'm supposed to pick them up tomorrow, we'll see, hopefully.
    The other 2 I was supposed to get, they said they changed their mind and wanted to keep them but I think they got rid of them to someone else, one was in a painted shell and they were living in a wire cage. I was going to rescue them I just hope they will be better taken care of.:)

    I have 2 small hermit crabs with about a dozen extra painted shells & food. I am asking $10 for them with their stuff and if you want the 10 gallon tank with them then I am asking $25 for all of it only so I can get another tank to put fish in.

    I got responses from two folks when I posted but honestly didn't trust either of them. One said not to converse via email but to call and the other I have a feeling was the one above (who said it was free to me at first). I guess I'm not trusting enough because even though I posted, I'm not following through on any of the responses.

    I trust y'all though... LOL!
