Mind Boggling

I love the internet for the simple fact that you can learn something new all the time. For example, I came across this time-lapsed video showing how a crab sheds its shell. First of all, it has never occurred to me that crabs shed their shells, but after watching this it makes perfect sense – they grow out of their exoskeleton.  Duh!

(Ignore the ad before the actual video)

It looked like the crab ‘pooped’ itself out.
