Giant Hermit Crab Inside a Discarded Queen Conch Shell

hermit crab queen conchGood morning folks, 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. 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! MORE
