This is another poorly known species and is the largest species of Coenobitae using shells with openings up to 80mm and even coconuts when they are caught short. They can range from a pink/purple to a dark violet colouration and have pale lavender claws granules covering the body. In the wild they are mostly found individually and donít live around other Hermit crabs though groups can be kept housed together with out any problems. Though omnivorous they are more carnivorous than other hermits and meat should make up 40% of their diet. They are the most hardy of the species we stock and require temperatures around 20-26į C and 65 up to 75% Humidity.
