The Orange Saltwater Polka Dot Hermit Crab (Phimochirus operculatus) uses a Turbo Snail shell as its home and when "inside" its shell- its large claw covers the opening and looks just like a Turbo Snail. It is the ONLY hermit crab that does this, allowing the crab to blend into the setting.
Please view our You Tube video below to see how cool this little crab really is on the reef.

So Adorable!
This has got to be the cutest hermit crab ever. He stands out from everyone else with ease. He was already out and about in the bag he was shipped in. My only regret is that I did not order more. If you like hermits, you need at least one of these guys.
