We became crabbers about March my 7 yr old sons idea. We started off with Zapp then a month followed and we got Scales...then Puckhead and Rex. Zapp died on Mon then Scales his tank buddy on Tues. The other two are fine. Not sure what the reason just woke up and they were out and deceased. We decided we would just go and "look" today. LOL!! So we got three more . Wasn't my hubby so happy. I know my sons were happy and the crabs were happy and I think that is all that counts. Three more crabs to spoil coming right up. I was dead set against them at first..being aracnaphobic but they grow on ya after awhile. Not sure who cried more when the crabs died me or my son. The funeral was a private ceremony just family pets and children in kitchen with the finest papertowel death robing I could find. The prayers were heartfelt. Even as the joy of the new crabs being put in the tank he still cried over the loss of his first crab buddies and how they were the bestest crabs he ever met. He told the new crabs to uphold the reputation of the tank...be nice ,we are to you. Let's see if they listen. LOL So far the small one name Yoshi is shy and intravert. The white shelled named Quizmo is asertive like a muscle guy at the beach. he is a lilac grey in a misleading size shell ,when he comes out of the shell he is HUGE. And then there is Speedy now ya see him now ya don't. please logg on for live chat folks..my son is dying to dictate some more about his crabs. he feels adult to be joining this special club of yours. thanks and hermit crabs are really cool. We have mix breeds i think. The other crabs Rex and Puckhead are fine....REX tunnels and makes a midnight appearnace at the shell buffet. Puckehad we see maybe for a split second...like he is afraid of hockey puck hitting him in head if he comes out. LOL...thus his name from my older son.

Thnks Kathy. Playing with Quizmo right now. She seems to think I am no threat. The crabs have relocated the crab world tank. everything is arye. My sons think they left the room a mess. LOL. Some have started to dig and bury. Suppose it must be a treat compared to pet store. they enjoy the fresh pile of calci sand to dig in. Puckhead has stopped tipping the bathtub over since we moved it so she/he can tunnel more with less spillage. LOL messy kidcrab that one.. Hugs to you. We are going to get our tree tomorrow and my kids will hang decoration outside crab-world tank in true holiday style. can't wait to see what they will make. We are trying to find a tiny tree, be it ceramic or not to put in tank for holidays. I am not wrapping tiny gifts with bows. LOL gotta draw the line somewhere.
