i get those crabs at the bait shop by my house for 1.00 each.
have no idea what kind of crabs they are but they dont have claws.
So Cool!!!I'm going to watch it again.
im trying to get him to learn how to open the jar. i have seen it done before. so ill hope henry is gifted as well . lol
For right now, I hope you give him the crab!
Maybe you should put a hammer in there too! j/k
Try a smaller jar and have the lid loose. If the jar is smaller, the octo will be able to cover it. From touching the loose lid, it will hopefully learn that it can be unscrewed. After it does it the first time, it will 'know' how to do it later.
yes i give him a crab one day and a shrimp the next day.
good idea paradox. ill try that tomorrow . that was the only jar i had. lol
i would reccommend that you slowly condition him towards the behavior you want. start with an open jar with the crab inside and no lid (smaller jar), then put the lid on but dont screw it. when he starts figuring that out gradually tighten the lid more each time.
