So I just spotted my second unwanted hitch hiker last night. I had found an emerald crab about a month ago and got him our and returned to the store that day. Last night I found a little fuzzy white crab in a nook in one of my rocks. I can't hey an id on it and I can't seem to get it. Any tips on how to catch him? I'm about to just take the rock out and try to dig into it to get him out. Also, is it safe to try and grab little crabs by hand? It's maybe .5 inches across is not less. Can a crab this small actually hurt of it pinches you? I feel ill have a better shot picking him out by hand than using a net.
