    she is a Purple Pincher, the blue-est pincher i've ever seen, really cool. but she is def. a Purple Pincher. PP's have narrow Eye Stalks. i have some PP's that are tan/peach from the lack color in there diets. E's Eyes are candycorn shaped and also have 2 dark lines running down there shield.
    Here are Two Pictures of E's. you can see the difference in your PP's Eyestalks and an E's Eye Stalk.
    First is my E- Ghost, he is a light green color

    It looks almost exactly like my crab, Shelly except with a different shell. That unusually blueish shell is almost like Shelly's too.

    they both are purple pinchers. E's have CandyCorn Shaped Eyes and PP's have Dot eyestalks. not all PP's look the same. coloring wise and how far apart their eyestalks are does not make it a diff. species. i posted a couple of pics of E's that i have a few comments back in this thread, look at them, you'll def.see the difference between E's an PP's but yours are def. PP's.

    I thought I had all PP's but one of my buried crabs came up and I looked him over real good. His body is kinda reddish-orange, and smooth and his eyes are bigger-like an E's eyes. The rest of my crabbies are def. PP's.
