Hermit Crab Care

disappearing crab - judy - 2/27/2005
hi sarah, i have a hermitcrab who disappears under the sand for months at a time. he doesn't eat,drink or move during that time! when he reappears he seems healthy and active. the first time it happened, he appeared to have molted as he changed shells. most recently he was buried almost 2 months and remains in the same shell. he is the only crab i have. i purchased a buddy for him twice and they both died soon aferward. do hermit crabs simply hibernate? no one at the pet store can give me an answer. i'm hoping you can. thanks,judy
