Omg u guys I've pulled 3 crabs out and they are like practically attacking each other in the Tupperware I'm holding them I until the travel tote is set. Should I be worried about this? I put one in his own Tupperware but now the remaining 2 are squaring off

Well when you put them in the actual home keep your eye on them and if they continue to fight you may consider separating them but if they’re in a small container I wouldn’t worry too much

Also before I came back in to find my jumbo staging a break out I had to frantically drop everything because I heard my dog barking in the distance and had to bolt to see where he had escaped my house too....


...he had managed to kick open the screen door to go and bark and my nextdoor neighbor in his driveway btw

I dont know it's clearly very old. I think I see I little claw in the 2nd picture. At this point I'm thinking I may have lost a crab for the first time.

Theres one still unaccounted for I hope hes in 1 piece

Good luck Rosie! It’ll be cool to have another New Yorker! I’ll send you a pm. Buffalo is about 3 hours from me I think. Good luck with all your crabbies, I hope everyone else is ok.

Ok, 6 crabs recovered alive and not molting, 1 crab discovered dead in sub.

I had about 2 inches of sand left in 1 cor er of the tat when I uncovered the last crab. I really thought he was a gonner.

Hers a pic of my transport tote. Dont worry I'll add some water / food before I go to bed although I admit I'm not sure if I should add supplemental heat rn. Luckily it's hot here at the moment so I think well be fine without it.Image
