He is tough and mighty and fearless! ;)

He's also only about the size of my big guy's BP, but don't tell him that.

Biggie rules the 40, so he's unchallenged ;)

My Felix was always the smallest crab in the tank but was the unquestioned boss. He is now medium-sized but still lords it over the others, including Big Enzo who is at least twice his size...no one questions Felix's authority :lol: !
PPs are Big Enzo, Charles Paris and Mr Pinch
On the Big Beach in the Sky: Murray, Gino, Oscar, Gordon, Ignatz, Harry and King Felix the Pale
Also Mom to Imogene the Syrian Hamster

My jumbos don't get involved in tank politics. Lol if they did, the others wouldn't stand a chance.

Of course! He climbs all over everyone and no one questions his ruling. It seems that the bigger they are the less they care about dominance, although Toad (my largest) considers himself second in command ;)
