My hermit changed again bigger and better this time.

You know I really didn't think a hermit crab would change shells this many times but this makes the 4th or 5th time. Each time he gets a bigger shell, looks like he might be struggling with this one. Same shell type as the last one, which is good because his last one was really pretty, this is nicer maybe he just likes looking good.

They are never happy with what they have. But next time he passes his old shell he will still check it out just in case. I can just sit and watch them moving shells. They are the coolest.

I enjoy my hermit crabs more that I ever thought I would. When I got them I only got them because I knew I needed them but now I'm glad I did they are cool. With those eye balls moving up and down when they get excited. Silly things.

Ya mine is about 2 inches across. He was big when I got him and he switched shells once and then went back to his old one.
