MO, KS, OK, AR Adopters

Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas
If you are looking to adopt hermit crabs, please make a small “want ad” here!

Read through this before posting:
[For Members Who Wish To Adopt:]

You must include your general location and how far you are willing to travel. If you are willing to pay for shipping, that would be a good thing to know as well. You should write about your experience with hermit crabs, your enclosure, and anything else you think an owner looking to rehome should know so that they choose you as their crabs’ new home. Remember to list how you would like owners and the Adoption Coordinator to contact you if PMs are not your first choice. Thank you!

I live in East-Central Missouri (along I-44) and travel to Washington and St. Louis, Missouri regularly.

I have a 90 gallon tank with around 7 crabs, including Purple Pinchers, Ecuadorians, and a Strawberry Crab. I have had hermit crabs since 2014 and even went as far as attempting to raise Strawberry Crab babies at one point. I included a picture of my setup, please see my Instagram account for more pictures (@hermitworld). I have UVB lighting and a hygrotherm that keeps my temperature and humidity pretty much constant.

I’m willing to drive up to an hour, but would consider traveling further for any exotic species. Long shot, but I am particularly interested in finding species buddies for my Strawberry Crab. I’ve had him for over four years at this point.

Please message me on here to contact.

Hello, I am looking to adopt hermit crabs. I currently have two ten gallon tanks and a twenty gallon long tank that I would like to add crabs to. I will have room for two crabs at the moment. I have done hours of research on proper crab care and do my best to give them good lives. I have had one of my first crabs recently complete it’s first molt with me successfully and has been doing great since coming up from the molt. I find hermit crabs to be fascinating creatures and hope to continue raising and caring for them for many years to come! I live near the Joplin, MO area, and would be willing to travel up to an hour to pick up. I would also be willing to pay for shipping costs. If you would like to bring them to me, I would be willing to consider reimbursing your gas mileage. :crabbigsmile:

I live near Tulsa Oklahoma, travel to Joplin Missouri regularly to visit family.
Would be willing to travel an hour or so from either location to meet.
A friend brought a hermit crab home from vacation as a gift. We had bought another from pet smart but it died. Haven't gotten another one yet.
We have a 50 gallon tank. We would love to add at least one more crab for our Stanley to not be alone, but would be willing to take more.

Hello! My name is Aly. I live in Pacific MO. I currently have a smaller crabitat than some people who house 8-10 crabs. However, I am definitely looking to expand my family. I have 2 purple pinchers right now, but I am looking for 1-2 more crabs to give some love to. I am willing to travel 1-1 1/2 hours for pick up and maybe more upon discussion. Email me for further information: Thanks!
