Hermit Crab Switch-Eru

TnT were fast asleep when this was filmed at 3:30am. Hermit crabs are naturally nocturnal and I am beginning to think that I must be of the night as well.  I noticed that Mr. Soccer/Lola (Little T can't decide on the name) was in a new natural shell, but still hovering over the previous painted soccer shell she (Little T says his crab is a girl) inhabited.

Mr. Soccer/Lola kept standing on her old shell and moving it every which way. I thought the behavior was a bit odd, so decided to grab my camera and film.

Sure enough, it happened...
