From the smallest to the biggest hermit crabs I’ve ever seen, and even some with ‘high-tech’ homes!

I used to collect shells on the beach until one day I came across a Hermit Crab that, unable to find a suitable shell, had chosen a broken bottle top as the next best alternative. At the time I thought it was the only time I would see such a thing. Now many years later I know it is almost normal. Today I had my camera at hand and please believe me when I tell you that this is NOT a setup shot. Hermit Crabs really do exist like this, so I ask you on their behalf to think twice before you take that beautiful shell home! Thank you!
