Do crabs eat veggies?
Yes, in fact, they do, in captivity. Tomatoes, lettuce, small pieces of carrots, and such are good. For tomato, only feed the inside as it is softer, since most crabs don't eat the outside of the tomato-the red parts. For lettuce, do not feed the stems, only the softer pieces. And for carrots, it is best to feed the other two choices, as carrots are hard to digest, but still edible for crabs.
