They climb trees in the wild and are also known as "tree crabs".

They like to climb anything and everything they can in the tank.

Mesh lids are easier to climb! Before I had so much enrichment inside my (now larger) tank, I would see them climbing upside down on the mesh lid frequently.

Yep. They like to climb and hang off of them. Nothing wrong with it.

Yeah, they do that. It kind of reminds me of how kids hang upside down on playground equipment.

It is painted, and not all metals are harmful to crabs.
