Jul 12, 17     Comments Off on Giant Hermit Crab Inside a Disscarded Queen Conch Shell

Good morning folks, sorry for the lack of postings lately I am once again working on more projects than I care to take on giving me zero time to jump on the computer. I am trying to get all my St. Eustatius photos like this giant hermit crab I posted today ready for key-wording and sent off to be copy-righted at the US copyright office, a process that takes forever.. At some point the Smithsonian will be needing these photos for talks and publications so me having them done ahead of time will be a big bonus.

This is another crab from our last trip, this time a giant hermit crab in a discarded queen conch shell which was most likely killed and eaten by a passing octopus at one time or another. The shell this guy or gal is living in is close to 10 inches in length giving you a little idea of the crabs size, I truly do love these hermits!

Have a wonderful day..

Barry
