View Full Version : Hermit Crab Longivity?

I bought some hermit crabs approx 8 years ago and none since. I still have one left so it must be around 8 years old!

It didn't move at all for a few days so I thought it finally died, but it started moving again so it must have just been sleeping. So, I name it Monty (after Monty Python)

Yea I've had a halloween hermit for over 3 years but my longest small invert is a turbo snail that I've had for over 4 years now( named him hershey cause it looks like a hershey kiss) it came from when i had my old 30g tank also have a sea urchin that i bought at the same time

In the wild diving I've seen them huge like bigger than a dinner plate so I'm assuming they keep growing and living as long as environment will let them
