New crabs

Post by Jamison » Mon Feb 11, 2019 9:13 pm

Today we got two New crabs. They are both purpel pinchers. A lot of you people who have lots of crabs probably would think they are small, but compared to harry, they are ginormous. One of them is energetic and outgoing. Two of his legs have little pieces missing. It doesn't seem to affect him. We named him hagrid. The big one doesn't have as much energy. I haven't seen him do much. His name is Norbert. They both are a bit.

Yess! I will be sure to post pics in the morning. I just went to the tank to see what they were doing. I saw Norbert at th food dish. I thought he was going to let me watch home eat but he pulled into his shell. Do larger crabs eat much more than the smaller ones?

Good question! I'd think the bigger the crab, the bigger the stomach. But as we all know, crabbies are the ultimate great unknown! Just make sure there is always enough food and you can't go wrong with that! Tonight is popcorn party in my tanks! They love that!

I remember Lloyd always used to love popcorn before he passed.
