I got a new pet crab. But everytime he sees my shadow, he turns his back to me.

I look at him every so often. And I just did. He saw my shadow. And ran to the other side of the tank/cage. I don't know why.

crabs are shy. i have two crayfish (craw-fish) in my aquarium. ive had them since they were tiny babies... (only 3/4 of an inch long). they are now 4 months old (3 inches long). it takes time. it will get better. be patient. move slow. oh... almost forgot. i also wanna warn you, they are expert escape artists just like snakes! they will climb out! keep it covered but with something with small holes in it so the tank or cage can breathe air. in my past younger years, ive lost a few crabs from them climbing out during the night. then they will dry out and die :-( they climb up air hoses and/or anything that they can hold onto.
