They don't do anything.


Answer by  bubbyboy (9929)

People like the idea that the hermit crab takes very little care. They are a clean pet that doesn't make noise or messes.

One, they are entirely low maintenance as pets. They are a pet oddity with no information or books written about them. They reflect ourselves, sitting there doing nothing, living a life of eating and sleeping what some of us would love to do! It is odorless and clean and it requires little attention. Perfect for a pet!

People can say the same about fish. They crawl around their cage and have large claws so they are always fun to watch moving around.

People have varying opinions for pets. You can also argue that fish don't do anything either but people love them. I suppose because you don't have to walk them or bathe them or groom them. And changing and feeding is also quicker and less messy. Not to mention there are not vet visits and they are cheaper to "replace".
