Why do people think hermit crabs are easy to care for and don’t need a lot of space and a lot of accessories?

    People at pet stores usually don't know any better so they don't educate people. Companies sell these tiny hermit crab enclosures so people think that means that's all the space they need. Proper info just doesn't go around probably because they are not the most common pets. This isn't a problem with just hermit crabs. Its a problem with any caged pet. Hell some people don't even know how to properly take care of a dog or cat. People seem to underestimate the amount of care pets need for some reason.
