Uca ornata

6. July 2007

January 2006: For the first time in Germany: The fiddler crab Uca ornata. We are proud to introduce this new species to the pet market. We got only few animals from Ecuador, hope however for further imports of this species. Further information for the maintenance of this at the Pacific coast from Ecuador to Nicaragua spread species are naturally not present at this time, however it will probably not differ substantially from the other fiddler crabs . The aquarium should have a large land part on that fiddler crabs preferentially stay, besides that a water part with shallow water is needed. They have no high requirements to their nutrition, nearly each offered food is eaten greedy. We hope that in the future more animals of this beautiful species will be available.(Photo F.
