That's a purple pincher. :wink:

There are a lot of hermies that I've seen on the HCA that look exactly like mine! :lol: Perhaps they could be twins. :wink:

99.9% sure its a purple pincher but it was missing its pincher when I got it and she/he is molting right now for the first time. I'm hoping to see a pretty new purple pincher soon. She is small, possibly a teeny. I just have really little hands also.

Thanks. I love her color. I'm hoping she doesn't lose it. There are a couple more pics of her somewhere in the picture section

Thanks guys! =D So now I know 1/3 of my crabs species =) I only take pictures with my phone, I have to find the charger for my camera so I don't really wanna put up the fuzzy pictures I have taken. I will wait until my camera charger suddenly appears then I will ask about my other two crabbies =) I appreciate the help! I love the color too! Claus is my favorite of my three. <3<3

If your hermie is a tiny I think I better print off that sheet to measure them. Claus seems to be about the same size but I called all of the small from a glance at the measuring sheet. hmmm...

I've since added more substrate, it was a bit shallow in this pic. My crabs are on the smaller end of the size spectrum though, so it's okay for them.
