Released our little buddy from ISO today

Post by C_fiesta » Thu Jun 06, 2019 12:58 pm

Three cheers for this not-so-little little buddy who I am saying made it through his post - molt processing!

We moved and had to dig up our buried crabs. This guy was pretty pale and lethargic so I isolated him. He finished off his big claw a couple days ago and more and more color has returned to him.

Today he was like "let me out or I'll kill you" Image notice the open claw? It was time.

Celebrate with me. Image Also, here are the pictures for curious minds in order from first discovering him and then today when I released him.
