    I got that freeze dried squid from Vicki's store. It's my crabs favorite food - even over the fresh offerings (save for grape stems).

    They are, but are small and not real noticable.

    Mine haven't seemed too crazy over the octopus and squid, but I keep offering just in case they change their minds. :)

    Do the suckers on the octopus and squid still act like suction cups when the octopus or squid has deceased???

    You're oddly enthralled by squid suckers dear...

    The suction power is proportionate to the life of the cephelapod I would assume. When I'm eating raw calamari, it doesn't suction to my throat afterall.

    Yes, as a matter of fact, I AM enthralled at about almost everything odd or awkward, it's just my personality! And thank you for all the interesting information about squid suckers and raw calamari!
