Resident Crab

Apparently, we have a resident crab who calls home the top of our drive.

I caught first glimpse of him last November when we were clearing up the tree trimmings...

There have been other sightings since then by guests...all in the same place. This is either a land crab or hermit crab, also known as a soldier crab. Based on where this one lives, he's probably a hermit crab. They are scavengers, feeding on dead leaves and branches, adding essential ingredients and helping the environment, according to local expert Jim Johnson.

Regardless of its contributions, we may have to start charging rent soon!
