Many different species of land hermit crabs live in tropical areas of the Indo-Pacific region, the western Atlantic and the western Caribbean.
Land hermit crabs live close to the shoreline and must have access to both land and water. They use pools and crevices of sea water to wet their gills and the interiors of their shells, and they reproduce and spend their early stages in water. Other hermit crab species are entirely aquatic.
Hermit crabs are omnivorous scavengers. They eat whatever they find, although not the former occupants of the shells they use.
At the Smithsonian's National Zoo, land hermit crabs are fed crab food and assorted fruits and vegetables.
