The Funny Things Crabs Do

Did you know that crabs change their shells when they get too tight? The crab takes his shell off just like we take our coat off. The new shell takes about two days to harden. Another funny thing that this crusty fellow does is that if you grab him by a leg he detaches it and runs! But don’t worry, in time he will grow a new leg. However, Mr. Crab has a very bad day indeed if he looses an eye. Because it takes a whole year for a new one to grow! Don’t you think that crabs are blessed to grow new eyes and new legs?
