    My mom was rushing with Stamp to my desk, don't know why, and dropped him from about 4 feet up.
    He won't come out of his shell, and usually does quickly.

    I saw that Stamp moved a little bit. Thank God that he's not in shock.
    Still, what should I do?

    Is he injured at all? If so, put him in the ISO. You should just let him be so he doesn't get stressed.
    It's okay. He'll be fine! :) It happened to a couple of my crabs before.

    Thank you CoolDoggy10 and Laughs O Lot. I don't think he's injured, considering he moved.

    They are tough little guys. Put him back in the tank with his familiar surroundings and don't disturb him. Keep an eye on him to make sure he eventually starts moving around. He's scared, and like Laughs o Lot said, we've all done it, it just happens sometimes. :)

    He'll be OK. Just let him be for a while. he's probably quite shocked.

    Yeah I wouldnt be to concerned. I have seen them on vacation pretty high up on tree's in the islands. Im sure they have fallen off those trees plenty of time. Like the others have previously stated just let him rest and keep an eye on him.

    Stamp is alright! He was able to take a bath with Gucci, my new crab, when she got here along with Harley and Nita.
