Creepy, creepy, creepy!
I was given this as a gift from a friend, who also gave me a book on them and set me loose. If never even heard of the breed before! It's also not something I would have bought myself, because I find them to be creepy.
They look creepy. They have creepy behaviors - did you know that thy can regrow their limbs? That if you keep them in too shallow a tank of water, they will retract their gills and become land creatures? That if you keep more than one young one in a tank at a time, they become cannibalistic an eat the legs off of each other?
They can't go on gravel, either. I've hear a lot of reasons why but my reason? Fred kept getting in between the rocks and would get stuck. They aren't very intelligent creatures.
