Functional, Safe, Fun, Creative Environments For Your Pinchy Pals!

Welcome to Coenobita Curiosities! Samantha began her journey with hermit crabs well over a decade ago. We met back in 2016. One day we were cleaning her crabitat and I became curious about the little guys. We both began doing lots of research only to find out we were doing everything wrong! We improved the crabitats and noticed an increase in activity and growth. As we became more knowledgeable about hermit crabs we became more and more comfortable with what we can and can't do with our crabitats.

Samantha and I started make our crabitats move visually appealing for us while creating interactive and enriching environments for our hermit crabs. We are currently caring for around 40 + hermit crabs that were adopted, rescued, and purchased over the years. We have several captive bred babies that were born in 2018, several large tennis ball sized crabs, and sizes in between. We care for Purple Pinchers, Strawberries, and Ecuadorian's. We use all of our products inside our crabitats months before offering them listing similar items here. Our crabs enjoy our handcrafted items and are sure your Coenobita's will be Curious to try them as well!

Hermit Crab Association
Land Hermit Crab Owners Society
Always remember to please adopt and don't shop!

We are also an approved seller of the Land Hermit Crab Owners Society!

    Hi! I'm Fleabag! I like to poke around the shop with Krusty and sneak into pictures. I wondered why hermit crabs like to live in big sandy litter boxes. Then my buddy Krusty told me they love to eat poop! EEEEW!

Frequently asked questions
Are your items safe for hermit crabs?

We use all our products in our crabitats. We use commonly used items that are considered safe by several popular hermit crab groups. Natural jute, aquarium safe silicone, aquarium safe stones (not dyed), natural shells (no dyes or bleach), crafting mesh, egg crate and foods are always organic when offered or otherwise noted.

Will my hermit crabs use your products?

We wish we could say yes! Hermit crabs all have their own likes and dislikes just like people. We have seen our own crabs using everything we offer. Not every crab uses everything. Sometimes it takes several weeks for crabs to realize something is there. Be patient and give them time to get comfortable around their new toys!

What's up with custom orders? Can I get a custom order?

Yes! Message us if you are looking to purchase multiple items. We often offer a discount based on total order cost. With bundling items into a custom order we save on fees so we extend that saving onto you!

You Do Not List International Shipping. Do you Ship Internationally?

YES! Send us a message if you would like to purchase items outside of the United States. We were charged additional exorbitant fees after going through Etsy's international Shipping. We will personally work with you to make a smooth transaction including reasonable international shipping fees. Working directly with us through the United States Postal Service we will get the best value price.

We ask for a list of items you would like to purchase. Once we prepackage all the items to get an actual shipping weight. From there we can determine the actual cost and adjust items if needed due to weight.

Why is your shop called Coenobita Curiosities?

Coenobita is the genus in the scientific name for hermit crabs. It also reminds us of the Cenobites from the movie Hellraiser. Our Curiosity Cubes also remind us of the Lament Configuration, the puzzle box from Hellraiser. We love horror movies, haunted houses, oddities, and other macabre stuff!
