    I looked at Hermez's pics and I am kinda confused on the difference between the E and the Rug. I have a crab that I believe to be an E, unfortunately he is buried at the moment so I can't provide a pic-been down 3 weeks:rolleyes:. He is very smooth and bright red-orange in color all over, no spots or anything and his eyes look exactly like the E's eyes. I know you can't base species soley on coloring, but I can't really tell a big difference between the Rugs and E's eyes!! Any suggestions? A characteristic tell-tale to the Rug or E?? Thanks! All my others are unquestionably PP's, this one has me stumped though:p

    Rugs have dark smudges under their eyes and a distinct back leg.

    They also have little hashes and bumps on their BP

    E's have two smudges on their sides and smooth pinchers.

    So he looks just like the E, only bright red-orange!! So I guess he's an E!! It really helps me for someone to circle and point out the differences!!

    Thanks a ton, Mallie and Hermez!! Ya'll rock!!!

    Oh yeah, is he okay alone with the PP's or does he need an E buddy?

    I dont know what happened but the words are not matching the pics........that info posted above is misguided- please be careful when copying my ID chart- thanks

    They also have little hashes and bumps on their BP- not right
    they have stitch marks and bumps on their BP re: rug
    E's have two smudges on their sides and smooth pinchers-not right
    E's have 2 hash marks on their shield and smooth BP's

    E's do like their own kind.........you can get him a friend or 2 :D

    Thanks guys!! Unfortunately, he is the one who was attacked this morning after molting. If he survives, I'll try to find him an E buddy or 2!!

    Thanks again!!!
