Species specific question

Post by kornchaser » Sun Mar 06, 2016 2:53 am

Can a PP have the orange/yellow tipped feelers? My tiny Boo has a light color, orange fuzzier feelers and eyes too hidden and small to tell their shape (she's in a 3/4" petholatus tapestry turbo that's too big)
I'm really not sure enough to think I somehow managed to get an exotic by accident so thought I'd ask!
The feelers I'm curious about have bent stalks at the end, not the feeder or long wavy ones.

I don't believe PPs can have orange antenna/feelers but I will just check a couple of mine. Mine don't have orange antenna/feelers but the end is a but orangey but its more of a light brown sort of :)

One of mine have bright orange feelers at the ends. :) just depends on the crab. If you look close enough crab antennae can vary in colour crab to crab.

However, the best way to tell a species is by other characteristics like their eyes. So if you think it's not a pp you should post some pics and maybe we could help you out. :)

Tried snatching a photo when I first noticed it, after I posted to the forums she was back in the moss pit.
