When I first saw the Hermit Crabs In Flatirons Mall, I thought they were absolutley adorable and I wanted one. Later I learned from Peta2's 100 Ways Kids Can Help Animals that these crabs live terrible lives.
They are either raised in boring captivity or taken from their natural habitat. Their temporary home was overcrowded and they had little water to cool off in. The tank you brought them home in wasn't even a foot long or wide and it left absouloutley no room for water to swim in.
I made this petition to send to Flatirons Mall and tell them to stop selling the crabs. Please sign!
