My hermit crab (Herbert) is not moving, or leaving his shell. I’ve kept him hydrated, continued to feed him, but he isn’t moving. It’s been three days, but nothing is happening. There is no smell either. What is going on?
Sounds like a case of PPS or Post Purchase Stress, he is probably to weak to move or eat because of extrem exhaustion from the horrible trip from the beach where he was harvested to the store where he was kept untill you bought him.
Hermit crabs don’t handle stress all that well and he may need a couple months to aclimate and come around.
I hope this post isn’t to late….
