A Hermit crab

My son asked me this morning if he could get a hermit crab for his up coming birthday, Hubby and I still are not sure if he is quite ready to take on the responsibility of taking care of one, not that I would think would be much involved like taking care of a dog or a cat,I’m just going have to weigh out the pros and cons of having one. But would an 8yr old boy really know what it means to take care of one.

    As with any pet, I would make sure to look into the different care needs that they have. Weigh it out that way. Do the research before buying, and that helps you pick out a healthy pet from a good store, as well as know what you’ll be getting yourself into.

    There’s more that you’ll want to consider, but these are a few helpful questions for new pets:

    – How do I pick a healthy pet?
    – What will they live in?
    – What supplies do I need?
    – What do they eat?
    – How much money is involved? Start-up and long term.

    Do a lot of web searching. A quick Google search brought up this site: http://hermit-crabs.com/ but you’ll want to search for others too, and compare the information you get.
