Shell fight, leg issue? Need info. :(

Post by HermitLass »

My crab Chuck came up today and I picked him up to find that the bottom of one of his legs was ripped open like he was pinched. What should I do about this?

Show us a photo of the cut. If it's just the leg tip then it's normal, but if he has lost an entire segment of a leg, let us know.
