Hermit Crab

Another photo from the Solitary Islands Aquarium in Coffs Harbour.

I just loved this hermit crabs goggle eyes. I think he should be called Napoleon because the shell that he is living in looks just like Napoleon's hat.

He does look quite nice on black.
Brilliant - looks like it’s nearly time for a new shell hat.
