Hermit crab moves into LEGO brick home

275x250.jpg A hermit crab has moved into a bizarre new home… a shell made entirely of LEGO bricks. Well he does live in an aquarium at Legoland.

Harry, who lives in a rock pool at the Windsor attraction, is said to have surprised keepers by opting for the red, yellow and blue shell over more traditional abodes.

Senior Aquarist, Liane Riley explained; “Hermit crabs have soft bodies which need protecting, but they don’t have their own shells.

"They solve this problem by salvaging for empty sea shells and literally moving in but we decided to give Harry a wider choice and the model makers here created a special LEGO house just for him.
