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.

    You can wrap it in tissue, put it in your purse, and bring it home (inside joke…ask your brother about it).
