    I was wondering if anyone else has had a crab chirp when they are lonesome? My son told me that his crab was chirping loudly. I was afraid something was wrong...like a fight, but I found Baby sitting on the very edge of the half log like a lone wolf howling at the moon. Crazy little guy! He had been keeping company with another crabby all evening and that little guy buried...leaving Baby all alone.

    When my son first told me he was chirping, I was concerned because he molted recently and I was just sure he was being torn limb from limb, but there he sat on perched on the edge of the log! Guess he just wanted some attention!

    i know that my crabs chirp when they get p'oed at another crab. maybe he was telling every one that he wanted to be alone on the log, but then again i dont speak crab so I wouldnt know.
