                    No but my friends did. Two baby ones. THEY WERE SO CUTE!!!!   Roll Eyes
     
But after two days one died and a few days later the other one did too. It's legs were falling off.Poor little guys. Cry

         I had taken her with me and my family on. There she got two little baby hermit crabs. One was for her and one for her and one was for her brother.  LATER WE FOUND  THE STORE WHERE WE GOT THE CRABS WAS FEEDING THEM POISONOUS FOOD AND SOME OTHER THINGS THEY WERE DOING WAS BAD FOR THEM! Angry Also we found out you should never get hermit crabs form a place other than a pet store or they could be unhealthy. I wish we knew this before.

It was sad that they died especially because they were little babies. Oh well.  Embarrassed

 They are going to get new Hermit crabs when school starts. This time from a pet store.  Smiley

Make sure they have the correct care sheet for them. You can get one from my hermit crab forum, it's downloadable and free.

There's also a food site just for land hermit crabs.

The odds are very, very good that your kids have brought home a marine hermit crab, not a land hermit crab and they will soon die in a Land Hermit Crab setup. They can survive out of the water and on the beach for a short time.
