Re: Hands-off or hands-on? I'd like to bring a thought to the table

Awww thank you! Gene is a sweetie. And yes! That’s who I meant. [emoji1303] Your second from the bottom, with the lighter colors, reminds me a lot of Corn- she’s got that light colored m leg thing going on too! She eats well tho, so it’s just her as far as I can tell! She is probably one of the shye...

Hands-off or hands-on? I'd like to bring a thought to the table

Awww such pretty little friends you have! I love the one in the dark shell that looks like he’s got a grey-ish type hue, the one up on your arm in the other pic I think? They’re all very pretty crabbies! I’d like to hear from anybody else who visits with their friends, occasionally or a little more ...

Stubborn E

@RiNiKy found some randomly in her pet shop one day when she went in, and since she knew I wanted some, she immediately texted me and asked how many I wanted! [emoji16][emoji177] @RiNiKy506 is the best!! [emoji8] So that’s how we got ours. I drove up her way and we finally got to meet. (Awesome!) An...

Re: Size difference

Wheels are the best! Always good for entertainment- and for the crabs too! [emoji38] Mine also love their wheels, absolutely one of the best things I’ve added to any tank hands down. They love them, plus I feel guilty that they can’t walk more like they would naturally anyway. I’m just a guilty feel...

Eccie size?

Oh wow- I would absolutely love to have an adult E! (I said adult, just mean an older and larger crab!) But- at the sane time I would feel so bad bc they would have lived on the beach free for many years before having to try to adapt to captivity... I guess unless we can get better about keeping the...

Hands-off or hands-on? I'd like to bring a thought to the table

I stay kind of hands off, as I will get them out occasionally to let them explore a bucket with a climbing surface while I shower and I will occasionally let my female walk on my hands but not my male. My female is generally more chill when it comes to handling whereas the male freaks out. I have a...

Hands-off or hands-on? I'd like to bring a thought to the table

I love handling my friendly crabs!!! Idk if you’ve seen me with my Princess girl yet. She’s the absolute best! I feel like the bigger the crab, the less threatened they feel and the more comfortable in general they get. Not all but most, it’s almost like stair steps from my tinies on up the size lad...

Re: Naked crab. Help!!

@overmountain 1 Im sorry about the three you had that didn't return to their shells :(.. You do get very attached to the little creatures don't you? Xx Absolutely- all of the ones I have lost were pet store PPS crabs that didn’t pull thru for whatever reason they couldn’t express to me... and still...

Molts are nerve-wracking!

Oh my! How stressful! Two of my jumbos just went down for their first molt with me (one is an Indo too) and to say I’m a nervous momma is an understatement! I adore these two especially, and will be heartbroken if something goes wrong for either of them. (There’s no specific reason they wouldn’t com...

Hi, I've set up a more secure isolation tank with everything he needs in it plus honey! [emoji16] He moved around quite well.. Naked... And he put himself in his water then had a rest and now is in a shell.. Phew!! I'm monitoring but leaving be as much as possible and set it up so it's dim in there...

Re: Become a crab!

LOL! [emoji23][emoji1787] Could you imagine if they made turbo shells in human size?? I'd definitely have my Halloween costume for the next 20 years. It might scare all the kids that come to the door for trick or treat though. [emoji13] Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk Omg I’m dying here...

We received two more rescue yesterday!

Thanks! I had adopted the other 8 crabs with @RiNiKy506, and this guy was thought to have been dead/gone. Well, he popped up 6 weeks later in their basement and thankfully I was able to get him from the guy a couple weeks later. Ryder is just a big sweetie. [emoji6] And yes, absolutely! Sharing our ...

Re: Websites that humanely ship hermit crabs?

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I think when ppl ask a question they would rather just an answer than to be bombarded with others op...
