Pics of attacked molter - first time out and feeding!

Post by hermieluv1 » Tue Jan 27, 2015 2:57 pm

If you have been following my post about my attacked molter who was left shell-less and with only 3 legs left, who I found down in a hole buried alive, and who valiantly dug her way out to cry for help, here she is! She came out of her shell finally, and drank and ate:

Thanks to everyone who is helping me through this, and thanks especially to Wodesorel for documenting so well her experience with her attackee!

Thank you! I just love her! And to trust after being mauled like that? Well, that is just incredible!

I am amazed too at how quickly they go down to molt again. Must be an instinct that tells them to get back in the game so they can live to fight again!
