Big aspirations..

Post by megmaholm » Sat Oct 11, 2014 9:43 am

My Craigslist freebie crab, Samwell, came up sometime last night. He's crammed into a whale eye shell and I decided to put in some more appropriately sized turbos for him to examine. He promptly ignored them, but one of my other crabs, Melisandre, is a shell-changing diva so she had to check them out immediately. She's a bit optimistic about fitting. :roll:

^ that pic made me realize how much I need to clean off the inside of my glass. Oops.

By the way, do anyone else's crabs eat sand off the glass?! I used to call some of my more 'special' crabs window lickers, and they seem to be taking it literally. :lol:

Haha! Sometimes I'm alone in the room and feel something staring at me...and it's one of the crabs. They're either imitating me or trying to brainwash me into feeding them. I'm not sure which. :roll:

Definitely the brainwashing, my hermies have done that ages ago. :) (I think, I can't remember...)
