The Hermit Crab Shells that are Gradually Turning White

You are already familiar with the different colors you see in most of your hermits. When a pale color came to your sight, you wondered and automatically a curious question automatically rushed into your mind like what seemed to be the cause why the hermit crab shells are turning white gradually. You may be alarmed that a possible harm is evolving in the shell that might affect the hermit crab. Of course, there are some reasons behind that occurrence. It doesn't happen without any cause. Regarding with that matter, a colorless shell might indicate that it has lost some needed minerals like calcium and magnesium.

Both calcium and magnesium are present in the shell of a snail which is the usual shell the hermits are fond of staying. These minerals are also the culprit in shells turning white that are used by hermit crab. Hermits used to look for a snail shell to be their protective coat. They can't live without it and they are willing to kill for a fellow hermit for the sake of the shell they really like. It doesn't matter to them if the shell is being owned by other crabs. This is the main cause of the fight of hermits that always leads to death in one of them.

Shells that are turning white don't have any effect on hermit crab. It is just a change in the outer color of the shell without any risk on the behalf of the crab. Hermit doesn't stay long inside the shell for as long as there is a new shell that is being introduced in their crabitat, there's a tendency that their attention will be diverted on the new shell. Hermits love shells very much that they cannot get it out from their system. It is already a part of their life that they cannot live without. Try to get it from them and they will become weak. It's like a cloth that they are always wearing with them. It's their source of strength and protection from any other harm that could damage their body.

Hermit crab that has shells that are turning white is not affected in a sense that it is just an external change in a shell. The delicate feature of a hermit crab makes them look weak. They cannot even get out from their shell in front of any person even that person is the pet owner. They tend to change their shells in the middle of the night or in the dark where there's no one that can see them from coming out of their shell. Seeing them doing it may disturb them and that disturbance could create agitation in hermits. They are sensitive to the extent that a simple irritation causes them to become weak. So, they needed a special kind of treatment and attention.

Shells that are turning white in hermit crab that are located in beaches are just normal. The salt in sea water that rubs the shells that are nearby causes the whitening on shells. Salt has a whitening property. It is even being used in cleaning utensils to wipe out stains. That characteristic present in salt causes the shells to whiten when they are soaked in sea water.
