Pretty in pink

Seen on the beach at Fish Hoek yesterday morning: a little hermit crab in a plough snail shell. It looks like it could be a Pink Hermit (Paguristes gamianus) and I will post it on the wonderful iSpot website and see if one of the experts agrees. It has been quite stormy here so maybe it got washed off the rocky shores that it prefers as it is not usually seen on the beach.

My bibile for sea creatures is George Branch et al, Two Oceans: A guide to the marine life of southern Africa, published by David Philip, Cape Town in 1994.


  1. How very interesting. I've never seen one in a plough snail shell.

  5. I think that what yоu wrote ωas actuallу very logіcal.

    I ain't suggesting your content is not solid., however suppose you added a headline that grabbed folk's attention?

    I mean "Pretty in pink" iѕ kinԁa boring.
    You should look at Yahoo's home page and see how they create news headlines to get viewers to click. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about everything've got tо saу.
    In my opinіon, it would make your posts a little livelier.
