  1. It’s hard to leave them, but I do, cos they need them more than I do!

      Yeah, in the marine protected areas it’s a no-no. Even when beachcombing on the sandy beaches we check each “empty” seashell for a hermit crab. They’re really tricky little critters!

    It’s fun to sit at the edge of a pool and watch the shells suddenly begin to rearrange themselves…

    Jody great post. There are so many thoughtless people that snatch the shell up and they end up in a box on a shelf and the poor little critters become homeless.

      Many thanks! California is packed with marine conservation areas where it is absolutely not allowed to collect seashells. There are also plenty of beach fronts where you can still take home what you find, but it’s always important to check ~and check again~ for critters inside!

    That is so precious and something we never think of!

      🙂 Thanks, Maryanne. One of our favorite things to do is to explore tidepools. You just never know what you’ll find on any given day and at any shoreline. But hermit crabs are always a good bet! Soooo cute!
