Recently Badxgillen offered me a critter carrier full of semi aquatic crabs. However Badxgillen does not have the time nor requirements to care for these crabs, so they are now in my hands. SO does anyone have any idea how to care for these guys without emptying my wallet? Summer is coming, and I do not know what they eat or need.

these guys are scavengers I believe so they shouldnt be picky.I cant really keep them as they are a cold water crab and to top it off they need to be out of water much of the time.Maybe if you had them next to an air conditioner that was onn 24/7 or just keep em in the fridge till the summer is over.Just kidding there.I will try and find you a species name.
