I'm sure it's been tried, but maybe it wants a challenge and catch its own food?

Maybe Isopods eat humans.

I agree with 'trancelikestate'. If these creatures live at 100m depth then this one isn't going to feel very much at home in an aquarium at a depth of 0.5m or less. Stupid bloody people!

I live in Vietnam and I've heard about the horse meat in British beef, so I would trust they have too.

I dunno; if I were an animal in a zoo I might like it there.  That's all a city is anyway, and I don't want anyone putting me back in the wild.

Animals are too much confined in zoos. They don't have their total freedom.

Yea, the total freedom to drown or starve or get eaten.  I would say a lot depends on the zoo.

Why not?  The press everywhere loves that sort of story.

Honestly, humans can be pretty thick, and cruel too. If this creature naturally scavenges for food on the ocean floor, then trying to force it to eat fish, seems more than ludicrous. I can't believe they have kept it like this for four whole years! Please put it back where it belongs, it's not your experiment, it's a living creature.

if this is a deep water creature ( http://www.seasky.or...ant-isopod.html ) perhaps the pressure difference between the tank and where it is suppose to live is effecting it.  I don't see a zoo being able to create the pressure needed in a zoo environment.

I agree.  Keeping ANYTHING captive and separated from it's natural habitat seems cruel to me.  It makes me wonder how much awareness such creatures have....

They eat rotten dead whales.  That is how they get so big.  If they want that bug to eat they need to offer it some rotten whale meat - with some blubber and skin attached.

you take a animal out of its nature habit and take it away from nature of course its going to be mad and rebel at times even take it to the extreme.if i was that giant Isopod i would the same thing.you want to study a living animal and how it behaves and really is study it in its natural habitat then you really know how they are.taking them away from their home and natural habitat is wrong.its one thing trying to save if you see it injured or etc but its another completely different story to take it from their home.i bet humans would not like it if some people would take them away from their home.put yourselves in their situations people wake up especially you scientist its funny you guys claim to be so smart yet you guys have more theories and etc and work with theories rather than answers science is useful but honestly science is a baby still lol for those who think science can solve anything and has the answers for everything you might want to rethink things and etc about science.poor animal
