He's adorable, congratulations! Is that a natural shell? It looks neat. :D

Thanks! He's doing great. Destressed for a couple hours then got pushed around by Batman a little :? But, now, after just getting him yesterday, he's already one of the gang. Really active and seems happy :D Yes, it is a natural shell. He, and the shell both look a lot more red and vibrant then they really are. No filters...maybe just the lighting.

My pleasure, and either way; I think Man-bat is cute, his coloring and his shell together remind me of those deep orange-red colors in an autumn sunset. :)

What a cutie! Sounds like he's settling in well, which is great :)

Wow, doesn't he look like a perfect candidate for me to swoon over and steal?! :) Love him!

He looks good! Hopefully he'll regrow that leg in no time!

Thanks guys! My 4-year old names our crabs :lol: Funny thing...Batman was missing a leg on the right when we found him as a stray. Man-Bat is missing a leg on the left! Batman regenerated his after his very first molt. Hopefully Man-Bat will as well! Certainly doesn't hinder his climbing. :shock:
