Hermit crabs from the tidepools..just visiting

A hermit crab out of it's shell.
Derek is lining up the crabs for their big photo shoot.
Here are the crabs we brought home from the cove field trip.
Derek spent hours watching them, arranging them, letting them walk around.

However, before they all died, we returned them to the ocean where they belong.
We are sorry if we hurt any of them but they were fun while we visited with them at our home.

Next time we will get a pet shop hermit crab that is not from the tidepools. But mom is not too anxious for a crab pet so I've been able to stall the kids for a while.
