Our kids never really have their own pet. We used to have a fish in a tank but after we had problem about water leaking we gave it away. Yesterday, while we were strolling in the mall, we saw these really cute hermit crabs with their artistic shells painted with all kinds of icons and cartoon characters on it. They were so enticing and I thought they are so cute. I bought two of them for my children. They’ve been wanted to have a dog or a cat and as much as we (husband and I) want to have it too, we just can’t because we are not allowed to have these kinds of animal in our apartment we had to say NO. They seemed to understand. So anyway, son picked the superman shell while I picked on behalf of my daughter. I got her a smiley face shell. At least they have something to look at when they get bored playing with their toys.
We were told these hermit crabs changes their shells 2 to 3 years, so we shouldn’t worry about it. Hopefully they’ll live that long though.
