Wow! Awesome! Is it me or is your Straw a little guy? Maybe it's just the angle but his shell appears to be a bit small compared to the rest of him. I still have two guys that won't give up the shells they came in 4 months ago!

I'm beginning to think Straws only come in pretty much one size. Maybe with the way your luck is going you can change that soon! I can't even imagine how adorable a teenyberry would be!

When I got mine years ago, I specifically asked for smaller ones. I didn't want larger crabs because I knew larger shells are more expensive and harder to find! :)
