Sanders is done molting

Our hermit crab Sanders has finally emerged from his long slumber. He’s a new crab, literally, having molted and formed a new exoskeleton. It’s a cool process in a theory, and a very boring theory in practice: we had literally weeks of a pile of sand instead of a pet.

Anyway, it’s late, and I’m tired. Photos to follow soon.

UPDATE: I promised photos, but it took awhile to get them up. Here you can see Sanders is now in love with tree climbing.
