    Re: New pics of Tim eating

    He is well BUT I think I am seeing black spots near his head so I am making a batch of the bath (minus the marshmellow root) and will start tomorrow. I took pics and am trying to download now. He really is trusting me now - I gave him straight honey tonight-he eats too darn neatly- I was hoping he would smear it on him...His antennas are definately fused to his eye now- its so sad- it all happened the first night when he was sleeping  :tear: will try to post pics tonight

    He looks great, considering. His color got darker too. That sucks that they got his eye as well.

    "they" did not get his eye--see first set of pics. it actually disintegrated, (cant spell) the antenna got stuck to it and it went away- his eyes in the first set of pics melt your heart  :tear: I hope he will re-grow it eventually

    Thanks all

    I am glad to hear little TIm is hanging i there for you.  My little Sharkey has been hanging on for over a month now...it is a little more work but I think he's worth it.  When he started eating after I brought him home, his color did darken up and he starting growing gel limbs pretty quick.  I made sure he ate lots of Vicki's molting food and lots of protein rich foods that I made up myself.  He loves squid too!  Lately he's been pretty still so I hope he's ok.  I am praying for your little guy to pull through.

    Re: Tiny Tim is really Tiny TINA - 12-4-06 update

    I finally got to sex this crab he err there I go--she is blowing  me away- I will post pics here of her twisty turning today--personally I think she was feeling real good and was using that weird claw leg in the back and was cleaning herself--talk about freaked out :headscratch:

    All in a days work of grooming see pics--at the end I outlined the little leg that has a claw like end--this is used to groom and clean-where the little feeder hands can grab and get rid of what the little claw finds--just in case noone has ever seen it--FYI

    The pics are listed in a series as they happened

    Gosh, woman....you are stronger than I am!  I would have lost my mind with Tim, er, what is HER name now?  Anyhoooo...maybe it is wishful thinking, but those aren't gel buds starting in the little indentations where she lost her other ones, are they?

    NO you would be doing the same thing as me  :shake: Its Tina now--Tiny Tina---LOL I dont think that is gel buds yet - I keep thinking that when I look at the pics but I dont see them in person. If she keeps up I reckon it will be very soon

    OH MY GOSH!!!  I checked on Sharkey this morning as usual. ( He spent the night in the salt water dish again) He was hanging out of the shell in a weird way so when I picked him up he almost fell out!!!  The tears started welling in my eyes but when I turned him over he had MOLTED!  In the salt water dish!  I guess the water helped him with his molt.  I pulled some of the exo off for him and left it within easy reach since he does not have either his BP or LP ( they didnt gel either this time).  I only hope and pray that he will be fine by the time I get home and chowed on the exo.  Thanks for all the prayers.
    Tiny Tina will be just fine since she has a great crabby mom taking care of her.  My prayers are with the both of you :giverose:  :blowheart: I love the pics too.  Sharkey did all of those same gross things!

    Re: Tiny Tim is really Tiny TINA - 12-4-06 update

    It took over a month for my injured crab to grow new gel limbs but he was a very picky eater!  He also did all the same things you are describing - the twisty, almost falling out of the shell,etc.  That is so wierd. It still seems that she is doing quite well.  I am sure keeping good thoughts and prayers going for Tina (now) and for Sharkey too.

    :tear: :tear: :tear: :tear:I am so very sorry....I was thinking about her all day when I should have been doing lessons.  I am sending a big hug your way((((())))) I was really hoping she would make it through since Sharkey has.  But then I haven't gone home yet so he may have......You dont suck...it was just her time.  She had a good life and passed with peace and with lots of love.
