My hermit crabs - Eddie

Hermit crabs are not a true crab, in that they use other animals' old shells for protection. As they grow in size they find a larger shell to inhabit.

 

Eddie is one of 10 crabs I own and refuses to move out of home, as a result his shell is badly cracked. You can clearly see his huge pincer claw in this shot..
