Harry the Lego-Loving Hermit Crab

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads


Presenting Harry the Hermit Crab, living in the Atlantis Discovery area of Legoland in Windsor, UK. And by “living in Legoland” I mean LIVING in Legoland: his shell is made entirely of lego.

When he needed a new home, the staff decided to construct an optional shell for him, which he seems to like quite a bit.

According to Liane Riley, a senior aquarist at Legoland: “We decided to give Harry a wider choice and the model makers here created a special Lego house just for him. 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”.
