My love! C. brevimanus

Post by SojMad » Sun Jun 02, 2019 6:18 pm

Here is my gentle giant who is the sweetest boy in existence. :smt049 He's been with me since early 2010 and is my oldest crab. He is the crab love of my life and I would be absolutely heartbroken if I lost him.

This was him back in 2010. :love7:

Him with one of the ladies. :wink:: They (he has several girlfriends 8) ) are still much smaller than him, as you can see.

Thank you! Haha awesome! They usually do. :D But my big guy still refuse to change the shell he's been in for a couple of years now. Stubborn crab!! But as long as he's happy I can't really complain. :crabbigsmile:
