your daily dose of spiritual food

136. el caricaco

the beach nomads

hermit crabs protect their vulnerable tails out of found objects in the sand

when they outgrow their mobile home, they get together and make a line by size

then, in an act of cooperation, they let go of their shell and take the bigger vacant one

dancing a conga line together to survive

we call them caricacos in costa rica

they love coconut and, like kids, will swarm to anything sweet

i saw a giant one the size of a bowling ball when i was a kid

i was so amazed by its size

i then understood that anything in this life is possible

just one of the beautiful inhabitants of our beaches

a mentor for all who are willing to learn

observe nature, endless answers will then unfold

  1. So they are lovers for anything sweet. The picture of the nomad looks kinda sweet. But hey, thx for sharing information I did not know before!

    Crabs and spiders are so cool when they are shot (pictures) closeby! Reality and fantasy makes them horrorific!
