i just want to know what species my hermit crab is
he is mostly burgundy and some red and purple.
Without a pic you won't get a 100% ID on him. But form the colors you mentioned he sounds like he could be a PP.
oh dear... A picture might help =/
Well if he's not mostly red, he's not a strawberry.
obviously not a blueberry,either (okay, so berries aside...)
Is the purple mostly on the claw? If so, he's probably a PP (purple pincher/Caribbean crab)
He might be a ruggie with the burgundy, but i'm not too knowledgeable about them...
I have PPs who are burgundy - if they get enough colorful foods in their diet they can have really interesting colors! Mine are a deep red with lots of purple on legs and claws and such. Exo color alone often isn't enough to identify a crab's species.
