I'm new to crabbing. I just decided to take it up about three weeks ago. I just got my crabs about a week ago. I have four of them. Their names are Elizabeth, Rose, Captain Pete and Citizen Snips. I have been doing lots of research since I have decided to start my new hobby. I think these little guys are such fascinating creatures. I have found a wealth of information but still thirst for more. I have been reading as many books that I can find and searching as many websites that I can find useful. Unfortunately there isn't anybody in my area that I know of that knows anything about hermit crabs to whom I can talk to about them. It's a little dissapointing but at least I have this forum and all of you guys out there that know a thing or two about crabbing. There is a lot of contradicting information out there but I guess you have to do what works best for you. I am so excited to journey into the hermit crab experience.
