Inspecting a Tiny Hermit Crab

At the end of my previous post, about Taketomi Island in the far south of Japan, we'd stopped at a cafe for cake and coffee.

Very Tiny Crab

I felt bad that we inadvertently chased him out of his home. When he returned to the beach, we put his shell back near him, and left him alone.

Fun set of pictures! Nice close-ups, as usual. I used to collect hermit crabs as a kid when I spent time at the beach on Cape Cod (Massachusetts.) I never remember a hermit crab abandoning its shell! You two must have been quite scary!! ^_^
Happy New Year!

Josh and Jena both LOVED this post. So did I, actually.
