Hermit Crabs, a type of crab, are a bug that can be caught in Animal Crossing series. This bug can only be caught in the Japanese exclusive Dōbutsu no Mori e+. They appear at first as a simple shell just above the beach, but when you go to pick them up they reveal their true self. If you leave them too long they will go back into their shell. It is more common during rain. They will disappear in the water if chased far enough.
It is more abundant from the month of June until September.
In Japan, Hermit Crabs are known as yadokari (やどかり).
