How can I tell if my hermit crab is molting?
Should I be concerned that my hermit crab seems to be missing his arms?
Should I put tropical plants in with my hermit crabs?
What are some hermit crab facts?
What are the little bugs in my hermit crab's home?
What are the necessities for hermit crab's?
What kinds of illnesses do hermit crabs die from?
No they cannot. A hermit crab's shell is its protection from predators, other hermit crabs, and the elements. Without its shell it will loose its body moisture and die.
I wouldent see any reason that the crab should die if its shell falls off. The one thing that would be bad though is it would be open to attack, or anything that its shell shiels it from.
