Peach Fuzz!

Post by wodesorel » Tue May 30, 2017 5:44 am

I finally got a new phone after nearly five years, and that means a newer camera. I was taking some pictures of my little Ruggie and I was a little shocked at just how hairy she is! I'm not sure if I had that bad of a camera all this time, or if she really is that incredibly hairy. I'm not used to seeing fuzz absolutely everywhere, including the eyestalks and the base of the antenna!

How big is she? My biggest, Chancho, is a bit bigger than a golf ball but I just recently noticed hair coming from his eye stalks too! I thought it was crazy and funny at the same time because it's like they've got little eyelashes :)

She's still tiny, maybe a 3/4 inch opening shell. I'd put her right between a small and a medium.

My two most recent PPs (my largest) look like that. They are the fuzziest little things, and the female has eyelashes for days. Also, they both have a long patch of crazy-dense white hair along the inside margin of the BP, that doesn't seem as pronounced in my other crabs.

I have PP's and I didn't know they had "eyelashes" until yesterday when I got out my Canon T5i. I have an iPhone 6 and the camera quality is nothing compared to it. I think all crabs have them but I've never seen them blink either haha (Zoom in)

That is probably my best eyelash pic, and it's gotta be five years old. :)
