    I love hermit crabs. I've had like 5 of them. They're great pets.

    Not in my sister's case...

    ...not to be harsh :eek: - but her's died right after the leg fell off (within 48 hours).

    ...best of luck! Let us know if he/she survives :) .

    They typically don't live long in captivity. They're hard to take care of. :(

    Get a goldfish. Or a cat. Or a ferret. :)

    A carefully jabbed toothpick might suffice. Prosthetic crustacean limbs are all the rage this season. :)
