It’s another hermit crab.
No, don’t worry, the other one’s still alive.
Not that you’d necessarily know that.
We don’t ever see it.
I know – they’re nocturnal.
We never saw it after the first few days.
It burrowed down somewhere under the substrate and it was almost like there was no living creature at all in there. Like some weird trick we were playing on Julia…making her change the food and water every day FOR AN EMPTY TANK.
So a few days ago Bill and Alex were at a pet shop picking up food for Alex’s fish, and they also picked out another hermit crab for Julia.
A lively one.
Julia has named it “Sharp Claw.”
So we’ve got Shelly or Sheldon and Sharp Claw.
And after a day or two of exploring his or her new digs, Sharp Claw has burrowed down into the depths, too.
So now we have two hermit crabs obeying their hermity inclinations.
I’m telling you…it’s beyond exciting around here.
