Re: Hermit crab rocking another crab?

Hi there are loads of shells in tank, and I believe good diet plenty of calcium and protein.
Maybe I should have added.. The 'rocked' crab has literally come up from a 7 week molt. And the other crab is new, bigger and not met him before...?? ๐Ÿค”

Hermit crab rocking another crab?

Hi all Something I've never seen before... One of my crabs was rocking (quite strongly) one of my other crabs (who went deep into his shell) from side to side for quite a long time!
