View Full Version : Hermit ID

04/07/2008, 06:22 PM
I was wondering if anyone knew what kind of hermit this is. Two of these guys came in with a batch of Baja reds. They were completely white when I got them, except for those beautiful blue antennae and eye stalks. They have slowly become slightly hairy, though.

So far they havn't hurt anything and seem to be rock grazers. They are quite shy as well.

Thanks :)

Wish I could help, have no clue. Cool looking crab though.

Thanks anyways. I've been hoping Leslie would chime in :)

They are good looking hermits - I just don't want any surprises.

His legs remind me of the ones with the anemones that live on their backs but the face not so much (and the lack of anemones) Maybe a cousin?

I know what you mean. It certainly doesn't stand as tall as my other hermits.

Sorry, I didn't post earlier because I didn't have anything to say. Still don't - I don't know what it is which is not surprising because there's just soooo many species out there!

Thanks anyways Leslie :) It was worth a shot. For now, it hasn't hurt anything, so hopefully it continues to behave.
