We are approaching the 3rd month with Inklet! Actually, on May 24!! He continues to gain size at an unbelievable rate! I think he maybe 1/2 of Inks full size already. He is outgrowing the 5 inch shell he moved into and I have found him in Ink's old cave several times. It's like he's is moving into the larger cave gradually! I am happy to report, my daughtor still delights in feeding him his snails. I am the one that cautions her about letting him get ahold of her again. He continues to chase our fingers through the glass. He stalks them and then pounces on the glass! You should hear her squeels of delight when he comes after her!! Yesterday I gave him the biggest crab he has had yet. It was about the same size as Inklet, with a shell of 3". We got to observe him grabbing it, and while I always cut one pincher off so he cant be injured, I observed he uses his suckers to keep in control of the claws so he doesn't get pinched. We also observed the poisening of the crab. Takes about a minute before the crab becomes immobilized enough for Inklet to haul it to his shell and dine! He never hides unless he is sleeping and then he draws his large clam shell up to the cave as a door. I would say his mantle is now about 3"! Really remarkable the growth compared to all the others I have had.
