Max & Mort Caught on Cam!


You know how challenging it is to take a video of hermit crabs eating? Extremely! Either you just luckily catch them on cam, or you wait for them to do their business. And the waiting thing is the hard part because a simple jerk or hand gesture will make them hide in their shells or burrow. Then you'll have to start all over again.

Anyway, this is a recent video of Maximus eating a slice of carrot taken last night:

And this is Mortimer eating the same slice of carrot after Max and the other crab (with no name) has left. If you'll notice by the 37th second you'll see Max out back drinking water from the bowl.

These guys sure LOVE carrots! I mean, as soon as I placed their food bowl in their crabitat they all crawled toward it. Mort even took a slice and hid beside their climbing tree so he could eat in peace. Sneaky little devil! :p
