    Darryl Strawberry the second resurfaced from his looooong molt the other day.  He's bigger than ever!  He still hasn't changed shells and seems a little more shy that he was before.  Here he is:

    Cool!  I love his colors!  I'm gald his molt went well!!!  :color:
     
  7. interesting observation about him being more shy post molt...my straws are the same way.  They used to not even flinch when I'd reach in to pick them up, and now they run when I just walk into the room...

    I've read that a lot of crabs are quite a bit more shy post molt than pre molt; at least for a short period of time.  Perhaps being all dug down and away from all the commotion for a long period of time makes them super sensitive to it for a while after they come back up.
     
  9. mine have been up for a month or so and are still "shy".  It's like they reverted back from not being handled.  I think it's better for them anyway to be more "wild"
