Crab owners are a little taken aback by the fact that their chosen pet is also food. They spend hours watching the little critters play in the reef tank. There is just so much you can do with a crab. They don’t fetch and cuddling is out of the question. The stupid crab wont even come when you call its name. Here crabby…crabby. No…nothing. If I wanted a crab for a pet I would go with a stuffed one. Kim Bettasso is a proud crab owner and would never eat a crab. If only crab would not be so yummy.
