If they’re living in the wild, hermit crabs consume a wide wide range of food items from decaying wooden, fallen fruits, leaves and grasses and merchandise that are washed ashore. These pets are omnivorous, meaning they try to eat the two meat and veggies. They may well be incredibly fussy with finding the shells they will use as their houses but they are not at all picky with the food items they eat. They locate food items in two ways: by smelling the food items and by looking at other crabs having the foodstuff.
