I think it really depends on the size of your crabs an where they pinch you! I have been pinched by both my jumbo which made me bleed but i actually find when my small crabs pinch me it hurts more necause they grab the smallest peice of skin it hurts alot more! But hey I havent been pinched for a very long time!

I agree it deoends on alot of things. I have only ever been pinched once and it was a large hermie. It got me right on the skin between the thumb and pointing finger. It hurt but not all that badly. No blood. It depends on your pain tolerance level too.

i was pinched by my jumbo, on my palm between my middle and ring fingers. it hurt, but that little claw is sharp, that one drew blood. i just flattened my hand so he didn't have much skin to pinch and after an agonizing 20 seconds, he let go. i had a few of my mediums pinch me but they didn't hold on like apollo did. when they pinched me, it was only for a few seconds.

I woke Bruiser up a week ago, and boy was he mad! Didn't break the skin, but it definately bled under the skin, and the tip of my finger was numb for a couple of days :) I learnt my lesson ... no disturbing Bruiser's beauty sleep XD
