Bernice and Chuck. A ~*LOVE*~ Story
It was very quiet in the crab-o-torium last night. Too quiet. This morning we awoke to see Otto munching on some grapes and shrimp. What was that by the fresh water pool? The hermit crabs often rearrange the shells and stones they have but what the heck?!?!?
Oooooo. Now I know what that is! That isn't stones in a pile ... that is Bernice ON TOP of another HC, Chuck!
YOU GO GIRL! :-)
All the books we have read say that hermit crabs are difficult to breed in captivity and there was little information. Apparently Bernice and Chuck had not read our books and are doing what Nature intended them to do. They have been in the same position for over two hours now. Maybe longer since we only first discovered their activity then.
I need to find more HC information. We had not expected to have Grand-crabs! OMG! We need to get the nursery ready. Little crabby mobiles over the crabby cribs. Crabby booties. Baby crab shells. So much to do and I'm sure Bernice will give us The Claw when she sees the decor of the crabby nursery. LOL! I can just picture all the younsters inheriting their Mom's attitude!
Walk into the crabby day care facility and get greeted by mini The Claw raised on high! LOL!!! (Lordy, I need a life!)
But ... Don't count your baby crabs before they're hatched. Heck ... they aren't even "done" with the romance yet!
Keep you posted on the crabby drama at Camp Nappy.
