Carmi on at The sliver of sun in these photos makes me want to go there, too. You’ve captured warmth here – not easy to do in a two-dimensional medium that can just as easily render the average scene as soulless as an airport lounge. I can practically feel the sand in my toes as I watch this little fellow come out of his shell. Maybe there’s a lesson for us observers. Yuo have such a cool sense of vision! Natalie on at Neat photos! I’ve only ever seen those in pet stores. Shelia on at These great pictures take me away to the beach since it’s freezing outside, Thanx! Happy WW! 🙂 liza on at lol that is soo cute! my boys would love to play with those..;) Mine is up too Melanie aka lilknitter on at We had several of these as pets for a long time. They’re so ugly they’re cute. lol Happy WW! Lisa's Chaos on at That brings back memories from when I was 8 yrs old and came back from Biloxi with a sack of shells. I dumped them on the porch to explore them and one began to crawl – I began to scream! Alison on at Great pictures!! Jan Parrish on at Looks fun and inviting. Warm. Merry Christmas. Chris in Oxford on at My sister and I used to keep hermit crabs as pets when we were kids. Cute photo reminder! smarmoofus on at Did you encounter that in nature? That’s really cool! If that was taken in Antigua, I don’t blame you for wanting to go back for another visit! Cheers! My WW is here. D. Renee Bagby on at Those guys are great in all except when you’re collecting shells and find one of them by mistake. Ouch. ;P Happy WW! Nekked Lizards on at Cool shots. I never really got into shelled animals, but I’ve dodged turtles on the road a few times. shannon on at My kids love hermit crabs. They spend their time at the beach looking for the shells with crabs then putting them in hermit crab pens they make by piling up the sand. I am sure the crab population breathes a collective sigh when we leave. Pass the Torch on at I think I would like to go see her too! alice on at Great photos — the depth of field is very well done in the second shot! What a leggy crab! ;-D Sandy on at Thank you. Lisa on at So,I love how you named her! Suzy on at I remember when the kids had hermit crabs…interesting to watch! Diana on at Wow!! Thanks for sharing! Junebug on at That would be such a surprise to me to see something actually alive in a shell. Robocop on at Was your friend nice, or a crab? Shannon **Gabi's Mom** on at Great photos! Come visit us @ Gabi’s World e-Mom on at You actually saw one of these? AMAZING! ;~D chrisb on at You managed to get a good photo.
