The hermit crab is a pet that may rarely be caught while fishing crystal urchins during Prifddinas Waterfall Fishing. It goes straight to the inventory when caught, and catching it is signified by the chat message: You find a hermit crab! Like most pets, they can be stored in the menagerie.

While they will not run away when starved, they can optionally be fed with any type of raw fish.
