Instead of easily walking down the ramp to get a drink, he practically comes out of his shell to dip his toe in. Yes, the level is low. I have to top it off. Then you can ff to 4:34 and see what he does. I know. It's long.

Poor crabby went through so much trouble to only get his toes wet...and then he fell in anyway LOL. Image

I'll go first :) this is Squirt. She's currently dug down (possible molt?) but I caught her doing this last week. I love her ever adventurous spirit! Image

That crab looks exactly like my smallest crab, Dilly, they're even wearing the same type of shell. The weirdest part is that Dilly climbs her hut the same way. Maybe their sibling and we just don't know it! XD

Kinda old, but in response to @CrabbyChelle628 and @Elli Krabooz is an Australian company so those crabs shown are more then likely aussies, I don't think they're E's. they're virtually only exclusive to Australia.

Of course I can be fact checked by aussieJJDude who is from australia!

They are aussies!

I found out last year that krabooz hit the US market (using PPs I believe, not aussies though!) from someone off here, think it was Wod. Regardless, wasn't as successful as it is here in Aus (thank goodness) and to my knowledge, eventually stopped.

My crabs love to drag their food around and bury it sometimes or put it in their empty shells which makes cleaning a huge pain.

Mine love to pull the moss out of the pit and get it everywhere. They also enjoy pushing all the shells in the saltwater dish :lol:

Yup! My crazy crabs always bury the shells and it drives me crazy! Right now they are down molting though so I dare not straighten and clean them up but it is definitely bugging me to see them with substrate in them and stuff! Lol!

This poor guy. He gets squished, then thrown off. He was just waiting to get on the ride.

However, later on, he stood his ground. I think it's the same little guy.
