lol he was going for the water! maybe. :)
I'm so glad you found Huya, Wai.
I'm so very sorry about Juno, though :(

So many times I have read about crabs dying from their sand being too wet. This is a good thing to always be on the lookout for. Better it is too dry (and let the crabs wet it if they need to) than to have it too wet.

oh thats so sad :'( ! two bad things at once is pretty bad... but I think catching Huya will be not so different than other animals, it had happend to me after letting the crabs out for playtime once, I left out really stinky foods and a bowl of fresh and salt water in the room she escaped in, by the end of the week she was safe back in the tank, she was attracted to grapes (her favorite food :) ) and on the third night from when she was gone (I had been waiting every night until midnight waiting for her) she came from where she was camping out and ate the food! I caught her and placed her in the tat. :D
good luck!
I love my five hermies:
Bumper, the socialite leader
Sticky, The Devourer

Zuzu, you might want to look at the date on the messages you're reading - this happened way back in July. :P
