I definitely think they should be smooth or they wouldn't be in the wild, I have a 18 year old who is smooth and I adopted 2 2 year olds who were smooth but are now pyramided, no idea how it works but I wonder of its when they are very young
theyre about 3"
Yes I read that its part of their make-up kinda from how theyre kept from very young, I bought these guys at 1 year old I do need to improve the humidity I feel. Always a problem in the uk.
My 13 yr old's shell is fine so im doing something right you just so so many horro stories...
i have two new guys had them just over a year now, they're coming up to 3 year old, I also have a 13 year old from newborn too, he is perfectly smooth but the younger ones are showing signs of pyramiding which i dont like one bit, we have just moved and are going to be doing a new table soon so...
I have a 14 year old cherry head and two three year old redfoots, ive just noticed that one ooks like its showing signs of pyramiding, the othe rthree year old is ok as is my oldest, is there any reason for this?

My kids and I are making a weed book which has now grown into a info book too, we are looking at the different types of redfoots but are finding it hard to find definate pictures of that type, does anyone know any good site with pics on?

can we see a pic
i have redfoots, my eldest is 12 and has a beautiful shell and i've never fed mine bugs, he gets rehydrated dried catfood maybe every two weeks or so give that a try...
im in the uk so hard to find steam crabs and that particular sort of catfood.
