Hello Blogville and Toodle-oo to Turkle!
We crabby girls, Shelldon & Beachnut, have a really big surprise to tell all of you today.
She's a beautiful girl and has a very chic sense of style. Quite the fashionista!
Here she is:
For now, Oceana is still getting used to her new surroundings and settling in here with us in our crabitat. We like her very much. She's such a girly-girl. All fluff and very feminine. She always keeps her legtips and claws looking lovely and she's very beautiful. Her antennae are always kept just so. It's sort of like living with a supermodel! Teeheehee. We are totally agog about this big development in our lives!
See, when she moved in, she wore this:
Then she almost immediately changed her outfit for the big occasion, to this:
That evening, she made another quick wardrobe switch to this stunning ensemble:
Since that first day, she has made several other changes to her look, and always to the perfect outfit. She really knows how to look her best and accent her gorgeous long legs.
So, this is our new crabby girl, Oceana! We know we will all be good friends and have a lot of fun adventures together. Next time, she'll be all settled in and ready to meet Blogville herself.
For now, please join us in giving her a big:
Shelldon & Beachnut
and now, Oceana
A Special Work From The Hands:
Hi everyone. We have actually had Oceana for several weeks. Adding new hermit crabs to your group can be tricky. Usually everyone gets along, but not always. Sometimes the stress is too much and the crabs can actually have a leg or even several legs fall off. Sometimes they survive this and even re-grow their legs and sometimes they don't. Newly introduced crabs might fight over a favorite shell. Again, sometimes this is fatal, sometimes it is just the normal process of determining the pecking order and who is dominant. Oceana has been isolated in one half of the crabitat for 3 weeks to give her time to adjust. A big thumbs up to our friends Daisy, Bella, and Roxy who noticed the plexiglass divider in the Snicker Saturday post where Sarge tells the girls a joke. The girls met back on Thursday night. I put them together briefly where I could supervise. Oceana picked a shell fight with Beachnut, who was totally shocked! POL. I broke it up and gave them several days apart again. Sunday, I took the divider out and the girls all walked around, climbed over one another, and usually ignored each other completely. Lots of extra empty shells and extra food helps prevent any crabby behavior. We think they are getting along now and have worked out their group. I didn't want to introduce her to you until I was fairly sure everyone was okay. I think we're fine now, but there are no guarantees. We are all crossing fingers, paws and claws that life in the crabitat will settle in and now be a place of triple the fun and joy. Thanks for coming along on this adventure with us!
