HERMIT CRABS FOR SALE
Click to see our Strawberry Crabs
Coenobita pelatus (also known as Strawberries) have started to surface in the United States. Reptile City is the first dealer to have these available to customer nationwide. We have shipped a handful to other dealers but most are going to be kept for our long-term research at our facility.
Strawberries are found widely in the tropical Indo-Pacific from the Red Sea to Samoa. Since these are so rare, Reptile City is only selling a small number of strawberries to our retail consumers. We hope to obtain enough feedback, which then will be compiled for a book which will be written about their experience with pelatus.
Pictures of the strawberries we have shipped will be used for post cards, calendars, and other gift shop related items.
" Thank you so much for my beautiful strawberry crabs that I received 01/23/15! They are clearly healthy and well-acclimatized; both crawled right out into my hands, and the female is currently soaking in the salt pool. Male seems a bit shyer but they have been through a lot. .
If you remember or have records, I would be interested to know when they were collected."
Otherwise thank you again!
