    We got this little gal, and i am wondering what she is. she has a light purple pincher, a brown body, and candy corn shaped eyes. she is gallery with the the captions "what am i?" and "i am a what?". i wanted to add the pics here, but it said they are too big. oh, i have do the crabby happy dance also- we just found nine tiny crabs :). we had only been able to find 1 so far, but we went to 2 pet stores today and they both had a bunch of them that had just arrived. yippee!! i thought we were only going to get a couple, but when we got ready to check out my boyfriend had a huge grin and sat down 6 at the first store and then the other 3 at the next. i was like wow mr. tightwad just got suckered by a bunch of baby crabs needing homes.:D

    Thanks Vickie- that is what i told the girl when she pulled it out and said "oh look a cute indo". when i disagreed she acted like i was a complete idiot. i swear petsmart has cute crabs but the rudest employees.

    Petland is the same way! I am going to get my stuff from vckums' site-hermit crab addiction. Petland employees always act like total experts on crabs and when I try to correct them, they get all snippy with me!

    HERMEZ did a great species ID photo page. You could always prove you're correct by printing it out and taking it with you. LOL
