What kind of food do crabs eat?

The sort of food a crab will need really depends on its species

and its habitat. Most crabs are aquatic and do not emerge onto land

very often, so most of their diet comes from what they can find

underwater. Most crabs are carnivorous, but some are omnivores. If

you are considering a crab as a pet, the pet shop will be able to

tell you what kind of food it needs. I have kept crabs caught from

the creek on mince and dog biscuits, but only for a few days.
