3rd year with eggs!

Post by hermitharbor » Tue Aug 29, 2017 9:58 pm

Just wanted to share one of my girls with her eggs this year, this is her second year, and my other crab who would have them for the third year now is molting so I guess no eggs for her, haha! I love seeing them with eggs so much. Glad to know Neptune doesn't leave his ladies hanging ;)

This is Nora!

Sadly I'm not able to, don't have the funds or the time to try my hand at raising them yet! :( I really want to one day though!
