Oh nothing, just being little piggy crabs, that's all! I put a few bits of cinnamon cheerios in the food bowl this afternoon to see if they would have any interest and almost immediately they were both at the food bowl! One carried a whole cheerio away to snack on it elsewhere and the other plopped himself right in the middle of the food bowl and was happily munching away when I left for dinner tonight at 5:30. I just came home at 7:30 and the same guy was still just munching away in the middle of the bowl! Lol!

I think cinnamon is on the unsafe food list.

These are old videos. I figured I'd post them again for new members who haven't seen them yet. They're my favorite. The 1st one, you have to look closely at the vine the first second.

Keep in mind, this was all in one night. In a very short time. Either the crab doesn't have all his marbles or he is the smartest crab alive. He created his own waterpark. You can clearly see he's doing this purposefully.

It does seem like all forms of life play in some way shape or form. Maybe it was play. Maybe it had an itch lol. Or maybe it was showing off. None the less, it was funny stuff. I’ve been showing it around.

Hah! I love the "let me help you with that" one! And the "you're holding up the line"! The crabby in the corner screen is just like, "bro! Move it or lose it!"

Currentally my crabs are enjoying the new cave hide I gave them. Which is basically a porceclin flower pot turned on its side and covered with eco earth.
Hi, I have been crabbing about 5 to 6 years now, and these guys have put up alot with my growing pains.
