I sure will!! His last one was short but he grew his large claw back. I was pleasantly surprised that he went back under so soon, but his claw still needed work I guess!!

Hermit crabs are really persistent aren't they?

To dip or not to dip. That's the question.

I was sure his leg was going to snap off. They tend to hang on with that last leg till the end.

WOW!
I am so glad that nothing happened to his leg! It really did look like it was about to snap off at the end!

I finally have a moulter in a corner window - so that's pretty crazy! :D

I did cover the sides, so little dudette (it's probably Harry, one of my first two) can have some privacy, but can still peek up through the bottom. ... it looks so much like two crabs in there, I got nervous for a second - but there's def only one shell, and I think she's begun munching the exo. Can't tell how much bigger she's gotten yet.

Only one crab out of eight is regularly up right now, but at least that one is in a pretty green striped snakeskin. It's one of my fave shells. :D
