Meet the Crabs: A Hermit Crab Photoshoot

The boys have had hermit crabs for about 8 months now. They were excited at first, lost interest for a bit. They have a renewed interest now that the crabs have finally begun to come out of their shells when they are around.

Daily they take thier crabs out of the tank and let them crawl around on the floor. Have Hermit Crab races, set up an obstacle course of sorts with items from around their room. And they have realized the crabs are the most active when they are climbing on them. So here they are:
Cohen's crab: Batman
Cale's crab: Crabbie
Rylan's crab: Captain Crab


  1. I don't think any of my kids would touch a crab... (and I wouldn't either *lol*) ... But they would love to watch them in the tank :)

  2. We've often thought about getting hermit crabs. This nailed it, my girls would love having crabs crawl all over the place!

    BTW, I was all excited to see my blog in you list. Warm fuzzies!

  3. have any of your kiddos been pinched by their crabbies? Just asking we have our own situations on that one...we also have a crabbie post. :)

    Thanks so much for sharing
