    And sorry I missed the other ones,but I will go back and read tomorrow. I have so little time lately.
    The first time I ever saw a hermit Crab was on vacation at the Gulf of Mexico. We were collecting shells and put them in the bathroom to be cleaned up.Late that evening the shells had grown legs and wandered in the living room.It was the greatest thing ! :)

    Maybe you can answer a question that's been on  my mind for a long time. We used to have a Hermit Crab,about 20 years ago,at the time it seemed like a great idea. Now I know better than to take an animal like this out of its environment. S/he was so beautiful we couldn't resist. We took good care of 'Killer' and he grew just fine,we provided bigger shells for him to use and he transfered fine,but the last time he got out to transfer and he just died without ever getting into his new shell.
    What happened? It's been bothering me all this time. We had him for about three years. Was he just old?
    Y'all can laugh,but I really loved that crab.

    ...and like fools we trust the delivery but it's all just drunk sincerity.
