Giant Pincher

Post by Erin9712 » Tue Sep 20, 2016 12:12 pm

So, I pity purchased a male PP the other day and his BP is gigantic. It's the biggest on a PP that I've ever seen. He's not a very large crab either so he just looks goofy with that giant claw. Thank goodness he's friendly otherwise it would be terrible. Image Image

Genetic diversity is nutty - but he's gorgeous! Good pics. :)

Thank you, guys
I can't wait for him to molt. He's probably my favorite crab now.

After a molt (and he looks due), he may "grow into" that humongous BP. Either way, he's quite a handsome dude!

I'm seriously hoping he molts soon because I'm moving in January and doing a MASSIVE tank upgrade at the new house and I really don't wanna dig anybody up. Lol
