SK's hermit crabs

I love animals and I enjoy looking at colourful marine fishes but I just can't bring myself to love a crab. YK has been urging me to play with his hermit crabs and I wouldn't even touch them. What else can they do besides hide in their shells all day, eat and walk about. I think they look like aliens.




When I was at the container yard this afternoon, one of the dogs (a big brown mongrel) which I have not met before kept sniffing my legs and wanted to follow me home. I would be tempted to bring it home if it was a puppy. Then again, I can't keep another pet in my house.

Now that Rusty has recovered, he's taking his walks very seriously again. In fact, he's back with a vengeance. Yesterday, he made me walk him for almost an hour. In the end, I was the one growling "Rusty! let's go home!" "This way Rusty!"

One Rusty, two hermit crabs and an aquarium teeming with corals and fishes... that's more than enough!

I agree, they do look like aliens!

Burcu, they're rather small. I know you're afraid of them :-) and that's SK holding them.

MH - You don't say! YK has been bugging me for one but I said NO! I wonder if Rusty and kitty can get along or not...

Blur Ting said...

World - Indeed! :-)
