Hello, Blogville Darlings. It's me, your Beachnut girl, here to visit with you today.
It seems our splendid Shelldon has been buried for 87 years, but really it has been about 3 months now. Goodness, I must admit that I am a tad concerned for her, but we cannot disturb her now. She most assuredly buried in order to molt and a hermit crab busy molting should always be given her privacy. Teeheehee I know that The Hands are certainly concerned for her, but crabs our size sometimes take up to two months for the entire process. Our Shelldon had a ginormous molting bubble that we all saw when she changed shells just before burying. The molting bubble is a sack of loose skin that stores nutrients and water for us so that we have everything we need while we are buried for our molt. My, aren't we fabulous and fascinating ladies?!? POL So, we must figure that our Shelldon is simply enjoying her alone-time and will emerge when she is ready to premier her newly freshened up self.
Meanwhile, I've had our trendy crabitat all to myself. Oh, I've had great crabby girl fun wandering around and enjoying our hidey holes, our loft and all of the gourmet foodables. Teeheehee
So, that's a little peek at life in the crabitat here at Sarge's house!
Speaking of Sarge, he whispered to me that he now has 25 entries in his upcoming Cattle STAMPede for the Blogville Rodeo! Goodness that's so very fabulous and we crabby girls are ready too.
The deadline to enter your cattle brand request is midnight on July 1st. Please surf back to his older posts for information and all sorts of hints and symbols and lettering ideas to help you design your own exclusive brand.
Until next week,
Ciao and Little Pinches,
Beachnut (and Shelldon)
