Triop 16 days old eating spinach

shed16daysIt’s hard for me to believe how quickly our dinosorta has grown. I figure you all will may get tired of seeing posts/videos about him. But I can’t help myself. lol It’s fascinating to me to see how fast Rex changed.
He shed his exoskeleton yesterday. It’s the light color thing on the left, Rex is on the right. I kind of hope he doesn’t get very big. I’m setting up a beta bowl for him right now. I plan to put some aquarium gravel in with the sand. Rex likes to dig and maybe the small gravels will keep him occupied.

I figured that Rex might have been hungry after shedding his exoskeleton, so I went online and looked up some things he can eat. He’s an omnivore, so he can pretty much live off anything within reason.
I par boiled (blanched) a sliver of carrot and a small spinach leaf. I wasn’t sure how Rex would react to the food. I was surprised when he pounced on the carrot. He didn’t seem to care much for it, but then he pounced on the spinach and ate his fill. I’m happy I was able to video a few seconds of his spinach feasting. It was something to see and I’m glad to be able to share it with you.

I hope you all are keeping warm during this freezing cold snap.
I hope that none of you are getting iced or snowed under.
Wishing you a warm & healthy rest of the week.
