Claws in the Classroom

If we have a LHCOS Local Representative in your area they are available to assist with setting up the crabitat and give a brief introduction to hermit crab care to your class.


Claws in the Classroom is a brand new program launched fall 2018. Teachers with classroom hermit crabs can receive free supplies to set up a proper habitat with the correct products.

To date educational grant programs are providing the wrong products and teachers are forced to buy the correct items themselves.

Our items are gently used items so supplies are limited and inventory will vary. First come first served but we can put you on a waiting list for some items.

We will also provide you some safe, nutritious foods.

Please fill out the Claws in the Classroom Request Form to receive your items.
