Picky hermit...

Two nights ago my hermit was checking out the other shell I had for him... well we both came to an agreement that it was too big so I bought him a medium sized one. I bring it home and last night he trys it on. He took a walk around but couldn't seem to let go of his old shell. He kept holding onto it as if it was a parent sending his kid to college. Finally he let the shell be but I woke up last night and he was back in the old shell again! He just couldn't do it. I guess the new one wasn't the same.
