It’s official, LEGO bricks can be used to build pretty much anything, including a mobile home for a hermit crab. Meet Harry the Hermit Crab who lives in the rock pool of the Atlantis Discovery Area at Legoland in Windsor, Berkshire, England.
"Hermit crabs have soft bodies and need to adopt abandoned shells for protection. It’s well known that LEGOs aren’t just for kids and Harry chose this [awesome] LEGO shell over a bunch of other sea and snail shells available for his perusal. Initially, the builders weren’t sure that Harry would move into the custom shell, but now he seems quite comfortable in his new home. If there is ever a shortage of shells in the wild, we know that now they’ve got an inexhaustible supply, thanks to LEGO maniacs everywhere.”
