Kinda weird

Post by Hermiesguardian » Tue Sep 08, 2020 12:54 am

One of my crabs has been sitting on the shelf in the corner for over a week. Doesn't seem to move. The other day I finally took him out to see if he was alive and he was. I decided to place him in the moss pit on the other side of the tank. If he was hungry he could nibble on the moss. A very short time later he climbed out of the pit and made his way back to that corner where it looks like all he does is sleep.

Crabs are just weird. And who knows what all they have stored in their shell. Might not have to move for a month. LOL

I can hear my 75g whispering from the barn.

Yes, crabs are weird. My Brevi likes to sit in the corner of the tank and watch my box turtle in her tank. He does that all day.
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com
