Crabs like to dig and tunnel. They can stay under months at a time. Resist the urge to dig them up.

Re: Shell change

Watch at the foot of the ladder. It's cute, after he switches shells, he sticks his head back in the other shell to make sure he didn't leave anything. By the way, after he walked around for a minute, he changed back into his previous shell.

Watch behind the top of the ladder. Silly crab. All he had to do was grab hold of the ladder. Which in the 2nd video the smarter crab does.

Friday I finally saw one crab, of the 5. But I haven't seen any since then. My crabitat feels so empty, it's like no one is living there!

I know @Hermiesguardian!!! Life has been nuts lately and I’ve missed posting.
I haven’t gotten any new crabs lately, mainly because I’ve been watching him closely with his back to back molts & large claw. I’m planning to hopefully get one this weekend!!

Dwebble suprised me by hiding under the food bowl. I picked up the food bowl and there he was! Always the best way to start a morning by seeing your crabs.Image

Clumsy

So clumsy! This guy falls more than anyone. Maybe his shell is too heavy?
