Re: Crabby genius?

i have the exact climbing branch Yeah I still have it but removed it because I wanted a more natural looking crabitat, plus Calypso kept getting stuck. Although I'm thinking that, if I get a new friend or two for Calypso, who are smaller crabs, it might be a nice refuge for them to hide away from t...

Re: What are your crabs up to?

I agree. you should get calypso a new freind. BTW, i am a huge pirates of the carrabian fan, so i love the name! Thanks! I'm definitely going to get Calypso a new friend or two. I wanted to wait and make sure Calypso was good and healthy (after Stitch died). I've talked with one person about possib...

I had cleaned the Crock-Pot after using it and had set it on the floor. I don't know how he got into it, but he couldn't get out of it because of the steep slippery sides of the crock. Silly crabbie caught himself!

Re: What are your crabs up to?

acorn is super active! he climbed the wall yesterday, LOL. his shell is about the size of a quarter and salsa is a tiny bit bigger. they recently lost their buddy, arrow, but i think arrow intimidated salsa because as soon as he deid, salsa dug down to molt, and acorn finished his molt and returned...

Re: What are your crabs up to?

Calypso is enjoying her dietary upgrade (I recently made some purchases from the Hermit Crab Patch). I just now picked up a little flower petal (from the berry snack mix) and held it out. She got excited right away–I actually dropped it twice because I was nervous I'd get pinched. Finally she grippe...

Re: My crabby Calypso

I am sorry to hear about the loss of your other crab, that always stinks :( Calypso is a big beauty though, and an close escapee! Thank you! I hope to get Calypso a new friend before too long. For the time being she (I actually don't know the sex) has been busy chowing down on the new crab patch fo...

Very cute! One morning I found my biggest crab climbing the wire which was outside the tank
Thank you! Nice, yeah I'm sure my roommate would have had a scare if he came home and found a crab hauling butt around the apartment. :lol:

Re: Sourcing live hermit crabs?

I prefer crabs of different sizes. I find less issues with aggression as there's usually a hierarchy - following biggest to smallest - which keeps everyone happy. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk Cool. Yeah I think it would be fun to have varied sizes, too, as they may have different activity l...

Re: Sourcing live hermit crabs?

Personally, I would adopt, but if you have to get them at a shop I would recommend which ever keeps better care of their crabs. I have mixed opinions on this, because my smallest was killed while molting but I also had crabs of a similar size have shell fights (only happened once or twice). some pe...

Re: Crabby genius?

They are surprisingly smart, aren’t they? And tenacious for sure. That is really funny that she got it stuck like that though! I though little Patrick was going to pull a similar naked move, but I was worried bc he was trying to push through a hole and would’ve been naked to either cling or fall......
