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

Looks like the little guy gave that other crabby the death stare at the end lol! He wasn't losing his spot at the wheel that time. Image

I miss my crabbies! They are the same size approximately and have gotten on the same molting schedule so that when they are both molting, I lose both of my crabs for a couple of months! They have been down since the beginning of the quarantine (about Mid-March in my location).

Oh wait, I just went back to look at my pictures of them and they went down right after Easter (April 12th) Image It just feels longer when they are gone because I miss seeing what they get up to at night!

Totally understandable-- I hate when mine are down :( But hey, when they come up it's just that more exciting to see them with their pointy, hairy legs :lol:
