Alternative Invert thread. Tarantulas need not apply.
So my nephews crab crawled out of his shell today and has just been laying on it all day.
He got it a week or two ago and he's hardly active, he even looks dead sometimes with how little he moves. I read that they like to live in communities so I got him a buddy yesterday at the pet store, but after being introduced the new crab hides in the corner, and the first crab came out of his shell for the first time and has just laid on his shell all day.
What's up with him, is he dying, molting, mating? Really unfamiliar with crabs so I hope I don't look like a huge retard with a dead crab.
So it's stress and not molting?
That makes me feel bad honestly. The crab was a gift sprung onto him with no notice from a family member and they didnt really give any proper equipment to take care of it long term. Would he really be getting stressed now though a few weeks in and not after a few days? And is there anything that can be done to destress him?
Can anybody tell me about keeping slugs? They've always fascinated me, but I don't know the first thing about slug care or where to get one...
This invasive species to Canada sure is gorgeous.
she's fun to watch hunt but she spends like 20 hours hidden and is a spaz when it comes to handling. she'll just be standing on your hand and a fucking molecule of air passes by and she teleports to your shoulder. i'm scared i'm gonna drop her so i don't handle often.
