Well, I havent been able to get any fiddler crabs for a week or so now because of a shipping delay and I've been nodicing my octopus is looking hungry. But I had no idea he was this hungry! I just looked in my tank and nodiced my octopus is wraped around a bee. Oddly enough its a bee and I can't seem to get my octopus to let go. My octopus looks fine but I'm afraid he is going to get hert.:sad:
i have never herd of this before but what do you guys think.

They do eat odd things once in a while - even birds.

If you don't have any crabs, why don't you buy some fresh or frozen shrimp and feed that to him?

As said before....a bee? How could a bird or a bee get inside a tank that should be sealed?
