Problem with walking legs.

Post by Vitalik_Miron » Tue Jun 23, 2020 9:02 am

Hi to all! Today one person gave me 4 hermit crabs, because he don't want to deal with them. I know that conditions were pretty well, but i am not sure about food and water. I saw that one of the hermies (Rugosus) has problems while he walks. The 3th pair of his walking legs moving very strange. Otherwise, he climbs well, and he is very active, but something wrong with his legs. What can it be and how can i help him?

Do the legs appear injured in any way? Injured limbs are often dropped and regrown, which you can aid by supplying protein and calcium for growth.

No, legs are fine, without any damages. Hope, maybe after molting he will be better.
