Pork chop would love them ,.(.IF he could catch 'em ),..when you drop one into the tank they really scoot,...you might have to feed him with a pair of forceps or " stun" one of the crabs first.., but I'm almost positive he'd eat them up.

Lol he is fast when live food is involved . He will catch crays if he misses his first strike. They probably are about the same speed...

Hey dary,

Im in Orange County, was suprised to see you are pretty close.

Not sure how the sand crabs would do. Ive heard of them being a mainly coldwater crab..but it seems they can survive in a warmer climate. Definitly sound like a tasty treat. Hopefully they are clean and such! Your right..fast little buggars thats for sure.

Not a coldwater species. We have them all over the gulf beaches, even when the water hits 85+

Good to know that they tolerate such a diverse array of temperatures,,,,, I'm really thinking about raising some now for food and entertainment .. Anyone have any ideas about what they may eat ? I may put a tiny morsel of fish or something in their bowl and see how they behave,..maybe they'll just eat whatever they find in the sand? ,..I just don't really know.

As far as I know they filter-feed from the surge zone using their antennae.

We have sand fleas here also, great pompano bait. They bury in the shoreline and stick their little filter feeler things up out of the sand.
