I know it’s not the focus of the article, but it never occurred to me that hermit crabs could find shells by smelling the dead animals.

Makes sense, though.

I found a really neat video on Aquatic Hermit Crabs doing it, the battle and the risks were insane. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_hBp1s ... e=youtu.be

That was such a cool video! I though the crab that took the risk was going to get attacked by a fish..

I thought the conch was going to suck him in. It’s like getting in a car in godzilla’s mouth.
