URGENT! What species?

Hello! A member of a Swedish hermit crab forum is wondering what species her hermit crab is. I believe it is some sort of marine hermit crab, but I know pretty much nothing about those. :? She has been to Tanzania on vacation and brought some shells back with her, but when she got home she discovere...

Re: Interesting behaviour

I wonder if its protection over his friend, or first dibs on yummy molting crab meat and exo :anon: But that is very cute otherwise! Crabs are definately social creatures. My hermies have developed best friends to, Draco and Pinky are stuck to eachother like glue. And Fred and George used to be clo...

Interesting behaviour

My two large C. perlatus has been doing great so far. One of them molted a few months ago, and the other one has dug down, resurfaced, and repeated that behaviour a couple of times. Probably because the one that has already molted has been digging like crazy and turned the crabitat upside down and s...

Re: Crab Handling

Hmm yes very logical. I was just wondering. Too bad they can't be domesticated though. It would be neat having a little buddy that likes being handled. I am thinking about getting 2 mice. Just kinda worried about care. But I saw a couple today at a pet store and handled them they were so sweet. It'...

Re: Crab Handling

Just like a rat in the wild they get scared too.. But what about when you raise a rat from birth? Will it still be startled as badly? A wild rat will still be nervous and afraid, yes, and they can be so frightened, even just by being petted or captured in the cage, that their heart stops beating an...

Re: my crab has a hole in his body (picture)

My PP also had an injury there when I brought him home. He has molted three times (if I'm correct) since then, and the scar is still not completely gone. :) Are you sure it is from a shell fight and not a parasite? It is on the almost exact same location as nibbler125's crab. :) And nibbler125; I ho...

Re: Molted brevimanus! :D

I knew he had gotten a lot bigger after this molt, but now I found pictures of him from his last molt - and look at the size difference!
