Movin' Up in Crabby Town.

Big stuff going on in the hermit crabs' Crabby Town.  It seems that Slow Poke, the crab in the pig shell, wanted to change his digs.  So he found a new home- in a shell that's about four sizes too big.

"Mama!" my son came running into my room this morning.  "Slow Poke is in a new shell!"

I crawled out of bed to investigate.  I picked up the shell.  I didn't see the crab.  "Are you sure he's in there?"

"Yeah.  Look.  The other shell is empty!"

I looked.  The pig shell was empty.  I looked at the bigger shell.  Sure enough there was a little crab tucked way inside.

Interesting.  I guess all creatures have aspirations of moving up into two-story 3000 square foot homes!

  3. Sounds like Slow Poke was feeling a bit cramped in his old home. Now he has plenty of room for growing and just hanging out.

    1. The funny thing is that Slow Poke had the most room in his shell. I think he's just a greedy little pig!
