Haven't Posted in Quite a While

I'm away Yuma for work. Again, I miss my crabbies! I realized that I haven't posted in a while. I will when I get back home. I still need to put pics up for Crabby (my old roommate's crab). He is doing very well. Although, Sebastian decided he didn't like the weather and died suddenly one day while I was at work. Crawled out of his shell and never went back in. I was upset.

Anyhow, more later...I promise. It won't be for a few weeks though.

Getting Nervous

A little less than a month ago, two of my babies went under the sand. They haven't come up yet and it has been well past the time that their monthly tank cleaning is due. Anyhow, I have put my pacing slippers on, because there isn't much I can do until they decide to resurface. Since there is no visible or olfactory sign of mold and other extreme nastiness, I will have to let them wander in the dirty sand until they come up and say hi to me. I still haven't gotten to take pictures of my old roommate's crab, because I had the camera stolen. However, I got a brand new one last week, so I will take pictures on bath day or tank cleaning day, whichever comes first!

On other silly animal news, my brother's Red Eared Slider Turtle escaped his tank yesterday afternoon and we have been looking for him ever since. I keep hearing him, but I can't see him. I know he will come out eventually. The same thing happened to one of my friends and when the turtle got hungry and thirsty it made itself visible and they were able to catch him and put him back into his home. So, wish us luck on finding him!

I Miss My Babies!

I'm in Yuma on travel for work and I haven't seen my crabbies in three weeks. My mom is crabsitting for me, so I hope everyone is well. But I miss the sounds of them crawling up the centerpiece and dropping off of it going KERPLUNK! into the sand. Its funny when they do that. Oh well, I return soon, early this week, so I will find out if any damage was done when I get back. Just had to write that I miss them.

Two Cross Over The Rainbow Bridge

Rigby and Darth, I was sad. My move back home claimed them. I'm not sure what went wrong, but I know that I have never been able to keep crabs of Darth's type for more than a few months. I'm not sure why this is, but I can't. I can keep a Strawberry Crab healthy, which is hard (so I've been told) and a Ecuadorian Crab healthy, but for some reason the Rugosus kind just don't last very long. I'm thinking it has to do with where I live more than with how I take care of them. But normally I can't find one of those in anything other than a painted shell, so maybe they go through more torture before they go to a home or something. It really saddens me. I don't think I will buy anymore Rugosus Hermit Crabs. I've had two in the past few months. One of them lasted a day, Darth lasted about 2 or 3 months.

There is a bright side to this post, however. My roomate from college couldn't keep her hermit crab, so I adopted it. I have lots of room for strays and those that need adopting, so I took him on. His name is Crabby and he is a rather large Purple Pincher. Right now, I don't see too much activity out of him, but he did change shells for me. I think he is still trying to get used to home. He huddles in the Coco Hut and a lot of times Sebastian likes to keep him company. Sarge likes to barge in while Pepper will linger around the hut and only go in to crawl on the ceiling of the hut or crawls on top of it. I think they like him. Ok, I will have to provide a picture of him in the future, so when he is settled, I'll do some pics.
