Found this guy sunning himself on my porch this weekend. And no, I didn't cut off the picture in a weird spot - he's missing his tail. Their tails break off if something tries to catch them (ask my kid how I know this...blech!)
And Kelley W. begged me for a hermit crab update. Which was kinda hard because lately, all they've been doing is this:
They like to hide between the coconut mat and the back glass wall of the crabitat. Usually all three are piled on top of each other, but I did manage to catch Summers out for a crabby stroll recently:
Then I had to leave to go put new batteries in my camera (is it just me or do digital cameras suck up batteries in like, 2 seconds, or something?)
Anyway, when I got back, I took the lid off the crabitat so I could lean in for a better picture and I got a big surprise:
Summers was ON the ceiling! It's a good thing I looked at the lid before I took it all the way off or I would have missed him and we might have had a crabby accident.
Just hangin' around...
KJ (and Summers the crab)
