My friend wanted to play with Hank yesterday haha. He was a lot more hesitant than I thought he would be. He took a little bit to analyze if the hand was a threat before reaching out and deciding that was enough intimacy for the day 😂

I found there was often one shrimp who managed to escape being caught. One, a little disabled shrimp, lived in the tank with the octopus for more than a year.

Your first photo of your bimac showing the yellow spots is excellent!

Hank is doing great. Still eating frozen shrimp with gusto.

Just a quick picture update. First one is of Hank playing with a plastic bottle. Second is of him being suspicious and peeking 😂

Been super busy with work since it’s the last quarter, Hank has been doing well.

He’s def a bit bigger ~15%? He still eats frozen shrimp with gusto so that is convenient. Although, I would love to get some shore crabs for him for enrichment. Here is a picture of him from today.

After a few weeks, Hank learned that the stick was not food, so he no longer fights and tug of wars me for the stick. He grabs the stick, takes the shrimp off and then let’s go

I’ll catch him, every now and then, playing the with little travel plastic bottles I bought from a local plastic store. He will tug and grab hold of them for a ride. Cool that it wasn’t a one off thing.

November I am coming up on 4 months with Marty. He was classified as “small” when I got him. How many more months should I be expecting I have left?
