how do u knw its a boy
You asked how you know its a boy. Female crabs have gonopores, males do not. I looked on this site but couldn't find anything
this sites has great info in general:
HERMIT-CRABS.COM. Your hermit crab care headquarters!
And this site, under anatomy, not only explains it, but has pictures of gonopores:
We got a new Lrg.PP male yesterday. No name yet. He changed into a new shell this morning. He will be one of the first to try out the new tank when he's ready to move. Thought you'd like to have a look at em'.
Love his beautiful natural polished shell. It's goregeous and he's a cutie
Aww, he's cute!
I was just telling Hermiefun this morning, that he is such a gentle giant!
He came way out of his shell at the pet store to greet me, so I lifted him up and yep no gonopores. Did you see the page on how to determine sex of crabs? Awww.....he just makes my heart melt w/ his great personality. If I didn't know better, I would think someone owned him before me. He seems soo tame! BJ decided to name him Juggernaut, and nickname him "BIG J" for short. The other lil' crab that I bought w/ him, is soo tiny, that we named him Ant! I was scared he/she would get thrown away! Ant is in a shell too big for him, and was amazed when I saw the BP completely disappear from view. It just looked like an empty shell! Ant is currently buried under for now, so when I get a pic. I'll post it here. Thanks for all the compliments everyone, even though he's my son's, I'm still proud of Big J! LOL!
My son and I are into the crabs together too. It's a great way to bond with and teach your kids about animals. My son is the one who got our first hermit crab information book from his school library. That made me proud that he wanted to learn about caring for his new pets properly. BTW his cat has his own little leopard print cat bed at the foot of my son's bed
I'm missing something. I thought the topic was about the sex of a crab?
I think the thread screwed up. haha
Well, better the thread than me. (Don't tell my husband I said that!)
The poster mentioned that the crabs belonged to their son.....that's what I was building on.
Sometimes I pick up on something in a post and I like to respond to it in the same thread.
LOL! me too, no biggy!
Mistakes happen. We aren't perfect. My kids think they are, but then I set them straight HAHAHAHAHA!
Very cute crab.
Me too. But that's why I get confused.
cool crab love the shell! what kind is he? thanks
I made a page on my site Hermie Care Central. |
it has a picture and some information if you would like to look at it.
About the sex of your crab to tell if it's male or female.
He's a Large, PP! thank you
