Long Overdue Pictures

Some of the exotics I've had for a very long time and others are more recent additions. I've gotten them from Hermit Crab Vendor, Live Hermit Crabs, Exotic Land Hermit Crabs, adoptions, and local chain stores.

Love the "Parent Trap" pic -- just like looking in a mirror :lol: ! The Aussies are simply beautiful, the best pics I've ever seen of the species. Thanks for sharing.

Hopefully I'll have more pictures to post of the Aussies in the future. Right now I'm trying not to stress out the four new Aussies by taking too many pictures. I just got them a couple months ago and they all immediately went down to molt and it's only in the past couple weeks that all of them have resurfaced (thankfully with great results and some regrown limbs to show for it!) The Aussie I've had for almost six years now, Darwin, is a fussbudget and makes a run for it nearly every time I open the terrarium doors to take a picture of her.

Just realized I meant to post an updated picture of the crabitat in the this thread but forgot about it. Here's one from today plus some more Aussie cuteness.
