So, is this bad?

Post by Lothlorien » Mon Aug 21, 2017 12:49 pm

I saw theese two, one on it's back and the other one on top.. Looked like hi was trying to get her out of her shell? I put a video down her. After this, the stood together like in the photo, touching and stuff.. Was this a date, or a fight over shells? They have like 12 shells or something. Five ruggies altogether.

Btw, Am I the only in feeling like a paparazzi freak, photografing the guys doing there thing? Image Image Image//cloud.tapatalk.com/s/599b1c35955 ... 450010.mp4

Okei, that's not so bad! ImageThe dominating one was chasing after the white one, and we got a bit worried! But ofc, they need to establish who's in charge :) That make sense.

Funny tho, the green one (Cap) just changed his shell a week ago, finally! He's old one was way to small, and after that he has been so active! And dominating, by the look of it Image

Where did you get ruggies? Just curious, as I've heard they're difficult to get a hold of

We ordered them from a petstore :) They get all theire delivery from Sweden (We live in Norway). I wanted PPs but they weren't on the list! Don't regret it now, the ruggies are adorable! Image It's just not as much information on then online, as the PP.

I have so many pics of our crabs on my phone, there's almost more of them than ones of me and my friends.
