    I heard that someone has had a crab for 18 years! all she has done was let all her water sit 2 weeks before she gave it to him!

    I don't know about the 18 year old crab or the water thing, but I do know that Carol from Crabworks has two 30 year old crabs, Jonathon and Kate. :)

    32 years, to be exact. It's amazing to see how they've grown, she has a picture of them next to all the shells they've worn in their life, from small to jumbo.

    Thats really crazy to think a crab can live that long..Its funny because Ive had my crab Gingo for about a month and Elmo I just got a few days ago but last time I had a crab was like when I was 10...But my mum kinda freaked out when we went to PetSmart and she saw some of the huge jumbo crabs..she thinks they look a bit spidery and shes all like as long as u dont get those nasty things loose lol
