 Do they like to be handled?

Are hermit crabs the kind of pet that you should love from afar, or do they like being picked up?

hmm, do they like to be handled? I think it depends on the crab. Some will pinch you, and some will crawl around and love it. But make sure that you do not handle it more than once a day. They get stressed very easily. And also, you should keep a blanket over its inclosure, because they are nocturnal, and it will reduce the amount of stress. Hope this answers your question.

If they pinch, their stress. Not a toy, living creature.
