Best Book on Hermit Crabs/Hermit Crab Care

Hello! I am looking to purchase a book(s) on hermit crabs to learn some more about my new friends, and was wondering if any of you had any recommendations. As far as care goes, the newer the info the better, so I've been looking at the most recently published titles (to supplement the info I get here, of course). But what I would really like is a comprehensive book on the animals themselves. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I have never consulted any books. All my care info has been from the care sheets on this page!

I agree with Curly. Most of the groups that I have been in on Facebook have said information in books is outdated. I only rely on information I find on this forum.

I’ve tried reading a few books, but most of them have just been regurgitating the same material from each other.

The HCA care sheets are much more helpful and up to date.

Thanks, everyone! That's kind of what I expected as far as care goes. I'll stick to online info for care and maybe just pick up a few books on the natural history of hermit crabs/crustaceans instead.
