Yes, we have had that happen more than once. We even had one carry around an orange moon snail shell. Kinda cool.

Hermits do not build their own shell, they have to appropriate shells of dead snails, or in a worst case scenario they will kill and eat the snail and then take the shell. As the hermit grows it will need larger shells.
