It's amazing when you see things like that. It shows that they are highly intelligent if they are infact immitating a hermit crab. To me that shows they had to watch a herimt crab. Then learn how to disguise as and act like a crab. Then finally remember to do it again when the time is right.

Its fine. The 'bone' is just the remains of a dead cuttlefish. Think of it like bones of a mammal, the meat has gone, but the skeleton is very much still in place! ;)
