Common Misconceptions about Hermit crabs

This is a quote from Danial Knop that was published in an issue of CORAL magazine in an article about hermit crabs. I think this sums up the common misconception pretty well.
以下是引自Danial Knop(德國有名有關海洋生物著作者)在珊瑚雜誌的一篇文章, 關於寄居蟹. 我認為這正好總結了對於寄居蟹常見的誤解.

"Hermit Crabs make great childrens pets!" This statement usually refers to hermit crabs from tidal areas as well as the terrestrial varieties. Some retailers offer "Hermie" in a plastic terrarium, complete with colored sand or gravel. The sales pitch claims that they "love to play and frolic with one another" and "interact well with children". After all "Hermie's adapt easily to human companionship".....or so this particular internet retailer claims. " Hermit crabs are quite suitable as pets, as they are small and can live contently in a terrarium for years." These are just a few of the actual claims made. the well-meaning person who falls for this inhumane marketing spiel and acquires the complete "Deluxe" setup, complete with a variety of plastic trinkets, will never witness these animals "feeling right at home", as the adverstisement asserts.
" 寄居蟹是小朋友了不起的寵物! " 這裏的”寄居蟹”通常是指潮汐區域棲身的的海棲寄居蟹和陸棲的寄居蟹. 有些業者會提供一個塑膠缸, 內裏放滿了彩石和彩沙. 而且竭力推銷地說”牠們很貪玩, 時常互相嬉戲”和”與小朋友也很互動, 相處得好”. “寄居蟹很容易適應人類環境,與人類作伴”.
或另一些在互聯網販賣的業者稱"寄居蟹很適合作為寵物, 因為他們細小, 可以居往在缸多年"
很少人會對此提出指責. 很多善良的朋友因此而墮入” 銷售催眠陷阱”裏, 而替業者買”豪華”套裝, 包括各種各樣的塑膠小裝飾品, 正如廣告宣傳所講, 很多人跟本沒有機會看到這種動物"有家有的感覺".

Yes hermit crabs can be hardy and resilient , but they do have limits beyond which they are unable to go. They require an appropriate environment, and foods sufficient in amount and variety to allow them to exhibit their natural behaviors . Only then can one truly enjoy the wonder of these tiny creatures. 
對, 寄居蟹可能是”堅強”. 但是牠們也有無法繼續生存的極限. 牠們要求一個適當的環境, 充足和多元他的食物, 使牠們示顯示到牠們的自然行為. 只有這樣才可以體會這些不可思議的細小生物.
