He is LIGHT and LIFE and TRUTH! Look to Him for the ALL the answers. He will guide us, if we'll let Him.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Hermit Crabs--Our New Pets

A. DeDe brought back Hermit Crabs for Hannah and Caleb from Panama City where she and Avery attended "Beach Camp".

She brought us 2. We've since added some more to our 'crabitat'. We've lost 2 so far. But, we're learning how to care for them. It's been an adventure for us. We moved the crabs from their little 'crabitat' to our 10 gallon aquarium and they have lots more room and we were able to add some climbing logs and larger food and water bowls and a little 'Hermie Hut' which is a half coconut shell. We also keep extra shells in the 'crabitat' so that they can swap their shell out for a bigger one.

We currently have 4 Hermit Crabs. We intend to add more to our little crabitat a little at a time.

We have:

Josh--little white shell
Summer--small pinkish tan shell

Sebastian--small black striped shell
Corkscrew--corkscrew shell

Today we bought some applesauce and Mango Fruit Dessert baby food and we learned how to feed them this "treat" with a large feeder spoon. Most of them really liked it.

They are fascinating creatures.
