Fancy Face

"Once I looked inside
the darkness
of a shell folded like a pastry
and there was a fancy face" - Mary Oliver (Hermit Crab)

We have two new members in our family! We adopted some hermits from a freecycler. We created a funky crabitat with everything a crab could want, although the Krusty Krab is more for our amusement.

We named the larger adventurous crab in the white shell, Neptune. (click on photos to enlarge their fancy faces)

The little shy, but sassy one in the brown shell, Pearl.

They spend their days sleeping in their driftwood cave. At night they go out on the town. They rearrange their furniture. They dine on crab food and special treats like mango, coconut, and kelp. They are especially fond of popcorn.
