Hermit Crab Rehoming

Yesterday, I saw a hermit crab swop homes.  I’ve never seen that before!  In the picture, he’s back in his original shell.  He tried out the periwinkle shell facing him, for a bit, and then decided it’s not quite to his taste and whipped himself back to his old home again.

We’ll have to find him a large enough shell.  He was clambering up to the curved out-pipe that drains the pond, and fingering it with all his feelers, clearly going “Hmm.  This one has potential, definite potential.”
