Massive Amount of Pics of My Hermit Clan!

Post by Kilimanjaro » Wed Sep 07, 2011 2:16 am

Hey, everyone! :D

Last night I was up for a while and there was a lot of crab activity. :wink: I changed out the water in the saltwater pool, so they had some fresh water to go swimming about in! Needless to say, they definitely enjoyed it. :) They also really loved their salad they had for dinner! :glasses2:

Without further adieu, we have my Ecuadorian eating some lettuce (if you enlarge these, you can see some really cool close-ups of the mouthparts that pull food into their mandible!) :

And once the Eccie had his/her fill, he/she moved onto some exploring:

Image

Image


Some shots of one of my Violas, who checked out both the fresh and saltwater pools!

Image

Image

Image

Image


Another Viola decided to do some climbing instead:

Image

Image

Image


Shinto enjoyed hanging out poolside:

Image

Image


After hanging out poolside, Shinto did a little bit of climbing, too:

Image


After seeing my flashing camera multiple times, he gained the courage to come up to the glass and check out my hand:

Image

Image


He also hung out with my Indo near the pool:

Image


Indos love having fun in the water, too!

Image

Image

Image


My Blueberry ventured out to eat some lettuce, too, that he/she had dragged away:

Image


A close-up shot of Shinto:

Image


Indo climbing around:

Image


And finally, my dog Nikki enjoys watching the crabs from my bed, too!
