Hermit crabs scavenge for a home, a shell to live in and protect them. So it should not come as a surprise to find that Harry at Atlantis Discovery Area at Legoland in Windsor, Berkshire, lives in a shell made of LEGO bricks! "Harry showed more discerning taste when he chose a shell made out of the blue, red and yellow bricks over the more traditional options," reports the <a href='http://www.shropshirestar.com/uk/uk-news/2012/04/02/hermit-crab-moves-into-lego-home/' target='offsite'>Shrobshire Star</a>. I sure would not mind a house made of LEGO!

he is so cute he will have the best shell until the other hermit crabs learn how to remove Lego Bricks and his shell will then become bit's and pieces of Lego Bricks scattered throughout the tank. poor Henry. he will end up like the fish in this childhood book i rememberThe Rainbow Fish, by Marcus Pfiste

Biology, with zoology in particular, is a bit of a quirky science. Thus quirky happenings happen. Although this quirky happenIng may not be all that great, as the Lego shell may be weaker than the natural alternative. *holds up sign warning small children to keep Lego bricks away from hermit crabs*

Well, I've seen hermit crabs using broken bottles as shells. What a great example of adaptation.

Hermit crabs can really adapt to its current situations. Using a Lego shell is just awesome, though.

When you get right down to it, we're all just shades on the spectrum of Humanity.
What matters most in life is not what you are, or what group you belong to, but who you are.
Fight hate with understanding.
Fight ignorance with knowledge.
Fight cruelty with compassion.
Don't be the poison, be the antidote.
