Hermit crabs like LEGO tooPosted: April 5, 2012
Harry the hermit crab lives at Legoland Windsor in the UK, and he’s picky about his décor. After he spurned the more traditional shells available for him, the Legoland designers decorated a new home with brightly-colored bricks. He instantly chose the LEGO option and seems happy with his new shelter.
I suppose being underwater must reduce the weight of all that LEGO, since he gets around ok. After all, he could always pop out and search for a different one. I do find it curious that a hermit crab would want to wear such conspicuous colors though – they’re not exactly top predators.
