Spiderman crab trick!

Post by hermieluv1 » Sun Apr 26, 2015 5:14 am

I was lurking at the 29 gallon last night, watching crabs eat, and saw the 2 air lines that run from the back of the tank into the front pools moving. One of my larger crabs had smelled the fresh food and was moving in.

Somehow, he decided that he needed to speed up his descent, so he wrapped his claws around the air line, and slid all the way down! I couldn't see his eyes so I don't know if it was planned or a happy accident, but it was hilarious!

Wish I could have gotten that on camera!
