I've been trying to get ahold of one of these again http://i41.*******.com/jb6c20.jpg I've got one in the past and sadly lost it.. I've been trying to get another for quite awhile :headwally:

Species: Calappa Calappa
Common name: Red spotted box crab, smooth box crab, shamefaced crab
Location: Cebu
Diet: I hand fed mine krill but in the wild they eat bivalves and snails.
Habits: Natural predator of snails, clams, and other mollusk. One claw has a hook specialized for tearing shells apart. Burrows in sandy substrate to remain hidden.

Is there anyway to get ahold of one of these?
Thanks
