Cavipes?

This area is dedicated to the pioneers who have captive bred crabs, and for those who wish to learn more or attempt it themselves. Also for inquiring about the gender of your crabs.

Cavipes?

Post by ErikRasmussen » Thu Mar 26, 2020 7:50 pm

I wasn't sure where to put this but are Cavipe crabs really a thing? Or are they trying to upsell an Equadorian?

This website is a scam. While the information might be correct. Do not buy from here. Read the reviews and do your research and ask the moderators on this forum there have been people scammed out of money when they ordered never received t the hire order or a refund.

Purchasing has been disabled for about a year now. If you follow through to checkout it won't let you finish.

Cavipes are an actual species, but they rarely come up. Mostly the occasional crab in Europe. I had someone send me photos once several years of crabs I was convinced were cavipe, but they never responded as to where the crabs were located.

The one in the photo is a Ruggie. Real cavipe have a slightly different eye shape, along with being super hairy and an odd shiny raspberry-brown type colour, like they were wood stained.

Purchasing all crabs is disabled for a year? Why is that?

Can you recommend anywhere to buy exotics?

Honestly, I wouldn't buy online at all. I have no desire to get exotics unless I find them in a home that is worse than the one I could offer. Then I would try to help them the best I could, like I did with my E. :D
