It's been awhile.

Boy oh boy.  It's been a long time since I last posted.  My life has been horribly busy.  Since my last post, Maui has molted at least twice again and Edlie once as well.  Tiger, unusually, hasn't.  She refuses to leave her old shell (she's still in the one that I bought her in) and seemed quite content when Maui and Edlie were molting at the same time.  Tiger is an odd-ball.  Not that I don't love her, but it's a little strange.  Normally, hermies love the company of other hermit crabs.  In fact, it's not unusual for a hermit crab to die of loneliness if it is kept alone.  Tiger is the exception.  She doesn't like the company of the others and doesn't want anything to do with them.  Edlie and Maui, however, are inseparable.  They spend all their time together.  I must keep this post short due to lack of time, but I will give a small update.  Maui is no longer the smallest.  In fact, she's now about the same size as Tiger.  She has also changed her shell to a much larger one which she seems to be quite pleased with.  Out with the old and in with the new!
