The Gift – Extra! Crab Breeding Site

February 28, 2008

The breeding of Red Clayed Mangrove Crabs. This gentleman succeeded in raising crabs from egg release from the female, right up to adult crabs. For information and pictures of this process, click here.

One thing of note – this gentleman said his female brooded her eggs three weeks before releasing them. We are just about at week #2 here with Scarlett O’Hara. So we shall see how long this takes. I may need to change the “baby food.” I have frozen freeze-dried mini-krill and some flake food. I figured I could grind up the krill into a power, and the flake food would dissolve and float, making both “accessible” to the tiny newborn crabs. He used a liquid “small fry” food, which I saw at Petsmart. I may try that.
