After spending several days beach combing along the gulf coast, the kids came home with a sizable shell collection. They had them out the other day to show a little neighbor girl. They placed a large shell on an end table in the living room and then got distracted for several minutes. Suddenly screams erupted and all eyes were riveted on the table…to their horror, the shell was moving across the tabletop. Protruding out from the shell was one large claw, advancing the shell along. Apparently this hitch hiker hid inside the shell until we got it home. A crab’s idea of sexy costumes? Not sure about that…but the crab and shell were hastily evicted to the outside in a bucket.
