Anyone got one of these? #1
We rescued it from Maidenhead Aquatics. It was in a tank of only water! ??

It was labelled as a Vampire Crab.

From reading up I don't think it should be kept in water 100%, but more like 70% land and 30% water.

Hi earwig

Looks like a vampire crab to me! Yes, they need land too.
