We added two new hermit crabs to our family. We now have a total of four. One new crab, pictured below, is little bigger than a dime, making him pretty adorable, as far as crabs go.
The other crab has already changed from the brown shell he was in at the store into a new green shell and seems to be considering changing again. Here he is checking out some of the empty shells we have around the tank.
Norah has taken on the responsibility of caring for her hermits willingly and spiritedly. Of course, I help when she needs me. I pour the fresh water from the gallon into the spray bottle, a job that requires more coordination than she's got at age seven, that sort of thing. She is learning so much and growing in maturity by taking care of them.
