Ruby Tuesday: a crab in a cube!

This is my photo for Ruby Tuesday. It is of one of my two red clawed crabs. His name is Buster - the other is Biff! They live in our aquarium with a selection of tropical fish. They are also called Thai Crabs as they originally come from the mangrove swamps and mudflats of South East Asia. Their proper name is Sesarma Bidens. The biggest problem we have with them (apart from their tendency to eat fish!) is that they are great escapers. We often find them in the filter or even out of the tank! This despite the fact we have taped up every means of escape we can see! Here's some more pics of Buster & Biff!
This is the original photo I used for the Rubik's Cube which was created at Dumpr.net

Why not join in and post a Ruby Tuesday picture yourself, the rules are simple. Just post a picture with red in it, but it must be one of your own and it can be of anything you like. For more details hop over to The Teach at Work of the Poet and check out the blogroll.

Buster & Biff! Great names.

the cube you created is amazing.

my son had hamsters who were escape artists. every time they breached security we would fix it and then they'd find a new way.
