Lance

Post by Xtina223 » Sun Dec 02, 2018 9:06 pm

Hi there

I'm new to the forum but have had my crab "Lance" for about 8 years.

I don't often handle him but tonight I gave the crabitat a good cleaning and took the opportunity to take a photo of his usual feisty reaction to being held :lol: I also got a snap after he went back in and moved into a new shell.

I've never been 100% sure of what species he is, can anyone tell me?
