Captive raised hermit crab adoption application
Welcome potential adopters!
Please read the rules and fill out the form below to submit your application. This application is for adopting captive raised land hermit crabs from the Hermit House adoption program by Mary Akers.

There is a $50 dollar fee for each baby you want to purchase and all of the money goes right back into Mary's breeding efforts. You must live within the US and submit thorough photos of your tank. You will be required to pay for over night shipping ($20-40) or meet with Mary in or near Lockport, NY. If you decide to have them shipped you need to plan accordingly and make sure to be home when they are to arrive.

The current babies being re-homed are Coenobita clypeatus (PP's, purple pinchers). Adopters must be 18 or older or get parental consent. To prove parental consent you will need to take a picture of your parent or guardian holding a sign with the current date saying they approve you to adopt from the Hermit House breeding program. If you plan to go to college or move away the crabs well being needs to be considered prior to adopting as this is a long-term commitment.

Now that we have the rules out of the way I will just need you to send thorough pictures or a video of the setup you plan to use to house the crabs. You can email this to us at:

Once we receive your pictures they will be looked over by the adoption team and the team will be in touch with you once a decision is made. Please be patient with us as we look over your application and photos. We might ask for more photos of something or have questions to clarify what we're seeing in the photos.
Thank you,
The adoption team
