The hermit crab is a type of crab that doesn't have a very hard shell. Not a true crab, it uses other animals' old shells for protection; they especially like old whelk shells. As the hermit crab grows in size, it must find a larger shell.

The hermit crab is a crustacean; there are about 500 different species of hermit crabs around the world. Most hermit crab species live on the ocean floor, but many live on land. Female terrestrial (land based) hermit crabs must return to the sea to breed.

Boa tarde Tsilla,

Excellent focus, interesting subject, good POV and beautiful colors. Light is OK>
Congratualtions and TFS

Great shot Tsilla. Funny to think of a crab as adorable, but I think this one is so cute and well presented. Soft colors and sharp detail. Particularly exciting for me, since I was there many years ago. This capture took me back. Hope to see many more from you. My trip was pre-digital era but hope I can figure out a way to scan and convert to jpeg without losing detail so I can share some as well. TFS. Shalom, Lori
