Event Description

Hermit crabs are not hermits — they're not even crabs! So what is the social and biological world of a hermit crab, and what can hermit crabs teach us about ourselves? In this presentation, we'll discuss the biology of hermit crabs and delve into documented hermit crab social structures. Then, we'll explore some recent research involving hermit crabs and talk about common misunderstandings in hermit crab care, bringing the fascinating creature that is the hermit crab into the spotlight.
