Coenobita Species

The common species of Land Hermit Crabs

Hermit Crab Species Test

Since there are so many different species of Land Hermit Crabs, we have put together this little test that will hopefully help you identify which species you own. There are many ways to tell the species of your hermit crab. Eyes, claws, antennae, shields and legs are probably the most common. Looking at all of them together is obviously the most accurate way to tell. Pick the image below that most looks like your crabbie and click on it to see what kind of hermie you have. We have broken these up into different categories to make it easier. We are still putting this ID test together, so please be patient. We will be adding more species as the pics become available :)
