Princess and I spent a great deal of time today,
discussing and worrying about one of our little crabs.It's the one closest to us in the above picture.
I think it's dead, she thinks it's molting.
My friend, Amy Sue
gave us a bit of helpful advice to figure it out.
We are still not sure, but since the crab did not fall out
of the shell when moved, we're going with molting,
and giving it more time. We did move them into a bigger crabitat,
which makes it so much easier for me to change their food and water
every day. Princess usually does food, I do water. She tried..it spills too easy.
Here are a few pictures of the other two checking out their space..they were very cute
running around checking everything out and then greeting each other with a lot of antennae
action and then they curled up next to each other under the driftwood and went back to sleep.
We were actually under a tornado warning here in our little corner of the Garden State
last night, but although the storms were violent, we survived with no sign of damage or flooding.
