A Hermit Crab Reluctantly Shares His Lunch

The word “hermit” is defined as a creature who chooses to live alone. But hermit crabs are social animals. As you can see from this quick video, even though other hermit crabs were trying to get his food away from him, the large hermit crab didn’t attack them. He simply brushed them aside. And when another hermit crab managed to tear some of the clam away from the large hermit crab, they both continued eating together. Hermit crabs are often found living together, with smaller ones living in tidepools and larger ones in deeper water.
