Who wouldn’t want to live in LEGO? This crab does

April 5, 2012

Apparently people aren’t the only ones that like LEGO, Harry the hermit crab at LEGOLAND Windsor likes LEGO too!

Hermit crabs lack their own body – so often protect themselves by hiding in nearby shells.

Bosses at Legoland in Windsor noticed Harry chose brightly coloured Lego bricks instead of regular shells in his pond.

As a result of Harry’s bizarre preference, park bosses decided to build a Lego home for him.

Harry’s new pad is made up of stylish blue, red and yellow bricks.

Legoland senior aquarist Liane Riley said: “We weren’t really sure if he’d actually move in, but he rejected the sea and snail shells on offer and seems very comfortable in his new home.”

Visitors to the Legoland park will be able to view Harry and his new home.

I’ve always like hermit crabs and this one is extra cool!

Of course, being a LEGO Artist, I’d want to tweak the model and make it look more like an actual shell. 😀
