    I adopted two beautiful purple pinchers this past Tuesday named Panda and Fredz. The previous owners were very sad to be giving them away. Unfortunately they could not provide them with proper conditions any more. They were purchased in Myrtle Beach, SC during their vacation in May. They've since both molted and look very healthy. They've settled in well with my rowdy bunch.

    They're gorgeous but the smaller one seems pretty pale?

    Thank you!
    Fredz is a bit pale, both are juveniles. I'm guessing they just started getting their colors in. As they get older they'll darken up. They're considered smalls on the hermit crab sizing chart.

    Hi Scoobdoo, congrats on the new adoptions!

    I am also a new adopter!!! Last week I received 2 crabs from the beach. One is about the size of a dime and the other is larger than my others, ABOUT THE SIZE OF A GOLF BALL!!!!!!!! I haven't gotten up the nerve to hold him yet, but they come to me, one of them in a Painted shell and now both are in turbos and doing well.

    Debbie

    That's cause you feed your crabbies all those wonderful leaves and bark. Panda is still a baby I'm sure he will turn brown as he ages. But for now his purple color looks nice.

    I sent an update email with pics to their previous owners. They seemed happy to hear from me. They've been exploring non stop :)
