Gotta love it when a freshly moulted crabby climbs on your hands and arms and leaves their impression behind! Lol! Image

My larger crabs have reached the point where their nails can break the skin.

How can something so cute be so painful to hold? xD

I’ve wondered if there was a way to have them filed down without hurting them. I don’t mean like hold them like a dog and do them, but by maybe putting something in their habitat to help file them down.

Their nails will get filed down as they climb. Something hard that they can dig their toes in, like a firm branch, would probably do it. Maybe a few rough rocks, as well?
