    I couldn't find anything on this so please forgive me if this is a duplicate post but, can one mix species of hermit crabs safely? For example, could I put a Ecuadorian Hermit Crab in with a Caribbean Hermit Crab (Purple Pincher)?

    In front of the crabitat! :)
    Yes, you can. But don't try mixing Straws and any other species because the straws like it warmer and more humid than the other species so the other species would quickly pass in an environment like that while the straws are thriving. :(

    Yep, E's and PP's can live together. I don't know about the other species like Indo's and Ruggies.

    Sometimes a Ma & Pa Pet store will have them. I know Petco & Petsmart only carries PP's and sometimes Straws - if they have them (My Petco stopped selling all reptiles).

    If you call, they more than likely will not know what species they have. You have to go there and take a close look.
