I had posted several months back about my hermit crab going missing in my house. She came back just fine, but her friend Butch apparently was not. I don't know what happened. He was a newer crab, but he seemed just fine. In fact, my avatar was taken just a couple days before he passed on. I found him one morning on the sand, dead. I thought maybe he was in molt, but he wasn't. It was sad. I really liked him. He was really aggressive (per store abuse can do that to a crab), but I wanted to tame him. He was the last of my Persmart crabs to pass, at least his last few weeks were not spent in that death trap.I miss you Butch.
My crab babies: (Es): Badoos, Ryuunosuke (Ryuu), and Spot. (PPs): Cutie Pie, Hermes, Mike, Rose, Russell, Scuttles, Steve, Toothless, and Zeus. 14 rescues either in recovery or ready to adopt - All PP.
RIP: "2005", Love River, Butch, Yumayie, Mini-Me, Bob, Pinky (and) The Brain, Palm Guy, and Nico.
In memorium: Rescues who just did not make it
