weird object friday from The Shore

As we all seem to be animal lovers, I thought I would have a traditional "Shore" pet as my weird object this Friday.
You can take home your own hermit crab. I remember doing this as a child. But..
..when I was a kid, the shells were never painted fancy colors and you couldn't by them their own condominium or palm tree.

I've never seen so many painted ones. Seems like there are only a few painted shells among the natural ones when you see them in the Maryland beach stores. My kids have brought home their share of those critters, too.

Wow... my son had several hermit crabs growing up but never any that facny. He would love to have seen something like that.

Can you imagine having a job where you go to work and paint crab shells all day?

Oh my gosh! This is really weird! What next, mexican jumping beans?

Next up: horseshoe crabs? That would take considerably more paint.
