Hand Feeding My Strawberry!

Post by Motörcrab » Mon Jul 13, 2020 5:37 pm

I did this a week ago with a dried minnow then realized I should have taken a video. Last night I saw the same one near the lid so I figured I would try it again. I offered a burning bush leaf first but there was no interest after 10-15 seconds. I tried a piece of popcorn next! We had a taker instantly! I didn't force it on the crab, I held it right in front and once it grabbed it I let go and backed off. I don't handle my crabs aside from moving them to maintain the tank, change waters, food or the inspection after a molt.

Pain or plain? LOL!

Xeno made it so it wasn't a pain for me! It's actually some of our banana flavored popcorn we give away with our cubes.
