CHAPTER 31. They need a Crab-itat! A crab-itat is a house for your hermit crab. What you need to make a crab house: An enclosure (we used a glass fish tank). A bigger shell than your hermit crabs shell because crabs might change houses. This is called molting when they grow up. Your crab needs a hiding spot to hide in when it is scared. We used a chopped log. Water sponge and food bowl. Twigs, leaves, rocks and sand to make your crab feel at home.
