  2. Ms. Sue, would crustaceans be the Complete Sub and the rest of the sentence be the complete predicate?

  3. Simple subject: crustaceans
    Complete subject: These crustaceans

    Simple predicate: wait
    Complete predicate: wait for feeding time at high tide.

    The verb "are" is never the complete predicate. It's used as a helping verb with another verb or it's used to connect the subject with the predicate nominative or predicate adjective.
