  • Land Hermit Crab

My name is: Crabbie (and friends) 

I am a Land Hermit Crab 

My scientific name is Coenbita clypeatus

I originally come from the Caribbean

I am very friendly but I do have a large claw that I use for eating and climbing. If I feel a little unsafe I may cling on. I am therefore better off being watched or held on a flat hand so that I have nothing to hold onto like a finger or thumb!


I eat lots of different things, I am a scavenger so I am not very fussy. I will eat fruit, vegetables, cereals, dog food and I especially enjoy ice-cream cones as I can pick at them with my claws.
