A home on the roam.

Hermit crabs live inside empty sea snail shells, As they grow, hermit crabs move into ever larger shells. I guess when we are out and about we are a bit like the Hermit crab!

I spotted this one at low tide on Meon Shore near Southampton.

  1. I’ve heard of hermit crabs and seen pictures, but never saw how they crawl in and out of the shell. If that crab has ears, when it heard the screeching birds, it would crawl right back in again where it was quiet.
