Do hermit crabs reproduce in captivity?
I had something odd happen yesterday. I noticed what appeard to be a blue legged crab stuck in the rocks. It appeared as if he had come through a small crevice from the other side and was struggling to extricate himself.
Long story short, I dropped an empty shell on top of him ans sure enough, he got inside and moved away on his own. When he was gone, I noticed another crab in the same situation nearby.
Now I'm wondering where these crabs came from. Are they newborn crabs?
