    Hehe it was cute didn't last long cause I was just doing a clean up and refresh on the treat/smaller snack dishes. I put some honey on one little shell with coconut, rolled oats and some kinda dried fruit and had some honey left on the little spoon - and I picked up Swirly and just firmly held his shell and let his front claws hang over the spoon and he nibbled my finger first then started slurpin up that honey :) I didn't give him too much since he was still antsy with some of his legs but still eating a little. It was just a neat experience :)

    I actually got to feed another one today too lol ... Jeffy the slightly bigger E was sitting atop the volcano so I picked him up and put the spoon of honey to this pinchers and man alive he was all over the place with his legs but while moving he was scooping huge bits of honey into his mouth omg I was dumbfounded lol. So funny. He got I guess what looked like a sugar rush and went into the cocohut and zoom down he went. Daggum I love hermit crabs!
