Cool Story

I was at Neptune's Gardens in Batavia today and noticed this hermit crab. The owner proceeded to share with me that she had gotten a call from a local. They had been diving in Florida and found this shell that they believed to be empty. He put it in his pocket and brought it home. 4 days later he found it again preparing for laundry and placed it on the kitchen table only to see it move. It's the largest hermit I've ever seen. And, it survived 4 days out of water. Cool stuff!



It was about the size of a baseball.

I stopped using crabs of any kind many years ago. Just too predatory.
