Are you feeling crabby about this picture? 👉 Hermit crabs, unlike most crabs, do not grow their own shells. 🐚 🦀 To protect themselves, hermit crabs search for abandoned shells — usually sea snail shells. When they find one that fits, they tuck themselves inside it for protection and carry it with them wherever they go. As hermit crabs grow, they often outgrow their borrowed shell. When this happens, they have to “shop" for a new one. Sadly in this case this crab found something else... Plastic pollution has become so pervasive, that hermit crabs are now living in our trash. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While these little crabs are making the most of a dismal situation, what they don't know is that as this plastic ages, it will become brittle and sharp from photodegradation, and is scientifically proven to be toxic to wildlife. 📷 debrisfreeocean Repost from @marine.animals
