Land hermit crabs are enjoying great and increasing popularity as pets. They are beautiful, interesting, easy to care for and hypoallergenic. Children and young people can hardly escape the fascination of the funny “crawling snail shells”.

Unfortunately, there has not yet been a German-language book on the subject of “land hermit crabs”. This gap has now been filled by Aqualog animalbook. In close co-operation with scientists and importers worldwide, the well-known biologist Frank Schäfer has compiled everything you need to know to successfully care for these beautiful and interesting animals and also draws on a wealth of personal experience. For the first time, a book is now available that provides comprehensive information for beginners to keeping terrestrial hermit crabs as well as for those interested in the natural sciences and dedicated terrarium keepers who want to try their hand at breeding these animals.

In addition, for the first time worldwide, all species of land hermit crabs are illustrated in numerous photos and many fascinating details from the life history of these special animals are told.

The 2nd revised and expanded edition contains an extra chapter on breeding these fantastic animals and also takes into account the latest scientific findings on keeping and nomenclature!
