How long do PP's (or any hermit crab) live?
How big do PP's get?
I think that in the wild they can grow up to be the size of a canteloupe and be 30-75 years old. In captivity probably 25-30 years and bigger than a baseball. :welcome:
The ones that get that big are called coconut crabs or Robber crab or the scientific name is Birgus latro. I like this website http://www.tonycoenobita.com/species_cavipes_eng.htm it has some good info on all the different species of hermies. If it is in Chinese there should be a place in the upper right or close to the top right that says english and you can click that to get it in English.
Great site! You should list this in the website part of the forum as well.
Will do that
