After scouring the local pet stores, I've finally gotten my hands on some of those (in?)famous Ecuadorian crabs, and, boy, are they cuties! The pet store had five in stock, and we cleaned 'em out. Meet the E crew: Flax Nirnroot Skooma Fennel Leek We'll see if I can still tell everyone apart after a shell change or two -- I used to work with the marine mammals at a well-known sea life park and could ID thirty-seven different bottlenose dolphins, but differentiating hermit crabs is harder than it looks! In the past few days, I've also spruced up the 'tat a bit, so here are some photos of the new kids enjoying their playground: Pineapple and coconut -- yum! Is it safe? Peek-a-boo, I see you! More pineapple-y goodness. And, to conclude, a couple of photos of a not-so-new kid: Puck, my first hermit crab! Checking out the new foliage after coming up from the substrate for a visit. Making a beeline for the food! Our crabitat is maxed out now, so this will be my last "new crabs" post for a while--unless we happen to come across a larger aquarium and a larger home to fit it in.
