Sally Lightfoot molted.....

Was quite dismayed this morning to see what I thought was a dead crab in the bottom of my tank. I recognized the body (it was the Sally that lost one of her claws).

After a hastily prepared eulogy, I sought out her sole remaining partner to deliver the unfortunate news. To my great astonishment, I saw both crabs perched upon the same rock!

As to the incredible regeneration powers of crabs, both crabs were in possession of all limbs!!!!

Needless to say, I am thrilled by this discovery. The wonders of nature in our very own living rooms!!!!

Just thought I would share this tank anecdote.

Cheers!
