Romaine Lettuce

Can crabs be fed Romaine Lettuce? I know iceberg lettuce is not recommended.

Any lettuce for them is okay.

Iceberg doesn't have a lot of nutrition, so for reptiles it is not recommended as it can cause deficiencies over time as a primary diet. For hermits, fed occasionally they may enjoy it and it would not do any harm.

I would strongly suggest sticking with organically grown lettuces (any leaf veggies really), they can hold a lot of pesticides which can be bad for our critters!

My crabs love romaine and I actually buy them the romaine salad bags from Walmart

Cabbage goes over well too.
