Ink Ate????

I just put a green crab in Ink's tank, and watched her take it. She darted out of her cave and grabbed it and now is sitting at the entrance, with the crab under her, I am assuming eating it. Is this possable? Could she really be still eating even though she had eggs? I remember years ago, one of the ones I had did resume eating after laying. Has anyone ever observed this before with an octo protecting eggs?
