    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?

    How would an octopus gets its hands on a bee or a bird? Both fly, are outsite, and the bird is definately too big to fit into an aquarium.

    haha wow....a bird!!! I'd like to see that!
    As said before....a bee? How could a bird or a bee get inside a tank that should be sealed?

    doesnt mean the bird got into a tank.. maybe in the wild a bird will die and fall into the ocean where it is picked up by an octopus..

    Yeah, I think they meant in the wild. Bees are very capable of getting into small holes. Maybe it got in thru the sump. Who knows?
