This has been staring me in the face pretty much every day! Meet “Harry Honda” … he’s our newest addition – he’s very content lazing around outside in the sun, always nodding off as you can see – uses a lot of sunscreen as he’s white. Then there’s poor “Jane Honda” (yes my husband called her that 10 years ago when we got her) – exhausted – runs around a lot all over town – shadows under her eyes – she’s not sleeping well because “ANNA Honda” is bawling all the time (no we dont have 3 cars!).
I was trying to go for a look of a Clint Eastwood movie here … A Fistful of Dollars,High Plains Drifter – a showdown in the desert type thing … the other contender is off left somewhere (!) – you have to admit – he’s looking pretty powerful, he was really strutting his stuff!
He’s only about 3/4 of an inch big! – had a lovely bright purple shell – the sort we all pick up on the beach all the time – well I do anyway, such a pretty color. Are these type of crabs the ones that grow and just keep changing shells? – I have absolutely no idea – I’m sure someone will know and a lesson will be forthcoming!
