It's been a while since I posted pictures of Zoidy, so I took a few pictures when I had her out the other day. :) Here they be:

Thanks guys! I really appreciate it. :D

And yeah, I usually call them a mini/three-inch lobster for those who don't know what they are.

Adorable! =]
I love that little gal.

I've been playing with the idea of owning a crayfish. And just wondering, what do you feed yours? I know their scavengers and all, but I'm still curious. :D

Oh, a crayfish makes a pretty good pet. Not the kind that you would sit there petting day by day, of course, but you can take them out and pet them sometimes if you wish. And if you love taking care of fish then a crayfish wouldn't be very hard at all. Zoidy's regular diet is sinking tablets you can get at stores for sucker fish and such. But a crayfish can also eat things such as,


Omnivorous-fish, shrimp, meat, vegetables (frozen peas, boiled zucchini, carrots, etc.), sinking pellets, table scraps. Don't feed too much fat. Adults do not need a lot of protein, and should be fed primarily vegetables.

I've also heard of people crushing leaves and feeding them to their crayfish. But I'd look more into that before doing it because it will probably require cleaning the leaves and stuff.

I'd say check out some crayfish websites as well. That's what I did and I found out some pretty interesting stuff. :)

Thanks! :D We both appreciate it.

Thanks!

And yes, she is. I love Futurama, and I love Dr. Zoidberg, so I thought I'd name her after him even though she is a girl. :o I find it hilarious how on the show Zoidberg thinks Bender is his best friend, but Bender don't care about him at all. And also how he always gets blamed for everything. XD

AwwwWWWwww!! s/he's so cute!

I love lobster crab looking things lol, I always feel sorry for the one's at the stores, you know the one's that are still alive and loving, everytime I pass the tank of those things I feel like buying them all then setting them free LOL.

Argranade - LOL! Thanks! And I feel the same sometimes as well. But I also sometimes feel like taking them all home with me. :D

cocker_luva - Thanks! :D

Beki - LOL! Well, when the guy at the pet store asked me if I wanted a male or female, I thought he went crazy, but I looked online how to tell the gender apart, and there is what they call a gonopore by the 5th pair of walking legs on a male, but on the female, the gonopore is by the 3rd pair. That's just what I learnt, and I'm sure you can find some pictures online as well.

My friend once had a crawfish we found in the creek after the hurricanes... We hut him in her pond and he ate ALL of the fish... We decided to relese him back into the creek. He can eat all of the fish there lol.
