Jumbo PP Returns!

Post by Overmountain1 » Thu Feb 27, 2020 11:30 am

Ok. So I have Mr S and Princess, my two jumbo PP. I adore them, and to me, every return from molt is a cause for celebration, but especially these really big ones. It was their first with me though, and so for that reason I’m especially relieved. Anyway- according to rough placement from where he came up, This should be Mr S. However, unless he’s gotten a bit friendlier and a lot lot darker, it may be Princess after all. But I don’t think I’ll know for certain til I can see them both! Anyway, without further ado- my gorgeous indigo and violet PP, fresh up from molt this morning.

Edited to add that I’m almost positive it’s my Princess girl now. Mr S wouldn’t suffer to allow me to let a leg and brush sand off his shell without running during or immediately after. Princess just sorta looks.... happy about the attention! She’s unique.

I just adore the one right above this- where she’s standing in the wheel- she has such a ‘look’ on her little face, the way she’s kinda got one eye up like raising an eyebrow for us.... I can’t even....!!!! Ah! Thanks everyone for sharing in my jumbo molt joy!! Image Mr EnDoh seems quite happy to have his napping buddy back again! Of the 3 living together there, those two seem to like each other the most!

Thanks so much everyone! My other big girl, Princess, is finally back up too! I know logically that 3 months isn’t that long for her size to molt but man it’s been so hard to wait!!
She’s still all sandy, but I’m so so happy they all 3 pulled thru. Image

I took this last one right as she was coming out of her hole- I’ve heard her digging all day long and had no idea where to expect her! Here she came....

It’s good to finally figure out who was who! Lol! So glad they’re all back and healthy.

It warms my heart to know that at least some crabbies in this world are having the best, longest life possible <3
