Creepy crawlie

25 Oct

Please meet Hamish, the hermit crab. And yes, these are my fingers… Isn’t he sweet?
Hermit crabs use discarded shells as their own ‘house’. When they grow and get too big for their home, they quickly need to find a new house before they fall prey to whatever is lying in wait for them. Vicious battles ensue if two hermits are going for the same house. But Hamish is fine, I’ll get him a seashell villa when its time to move on.
