Hermit Crab

#sea life

This Hermit Crab can live 30 to 70 years. It can become a large as a coconut. It lives in a shell, and honestly, I find it a bit creepy.

The joys of cruising provide many opportunities to find creepy, crawly creature.  This one was crossing our hiking path and I couldn’t resist taking a photo, that is after I convinced my niece to pick up the creature.

    Really great shot though. 🙂
