Kids Play: Hermit Crabs

Lisa’s kids’ hermit crabs had an exciting adventure last week when her daughters and the neighbor kid decided to play with them like dolls. These spoiled crabs got to enjoy a day in the lap of luxury! Or maybe they just put up with it. One or the other.

Don’t sleep in the beds, you’ll get crabs! (Sorry, I had to.)

What hermit crab doesn’t love riding around in a convertible and letting the wind blow through its hair?

After a long drive on a hot day, hermit crabs enjoy a nice dip in the pool.

I say it’s time to dump the terrarium and move these crabs into the dollhouse full time!
