    When I found him he was climbing upside down up the bottom of a driftlog...the poor guy was a fab climber...AND he was missing a leg...I couldn't resist. He had on a green turbo shell, now I see him in a green turbo, but either he switched into another g.t. (not mustang) or he grew 'cuz it doesn't fit right.

    He's so fast I can't tell if he is starting to grow back his lost leg or not...I think I saw a little nub there, but I don't want to stress him out any more than necessary...any thoughts?

    I luv watching these little guys!!

    I think she meant a gel leg. [​IMG]

    I've never bothered to look for gel legs or molt sacs or whatnot. I don't iso my crabs when they molt, so they don't need me to be on top of stuff like that, lol. If he's missing legs, he probably will molt soon. And he may be gone a long while, too.
