Hermit crab moves into Lego shell

Harry /PA

A hermit crab with a shell made entirely out of Lego is the latest addition at Britain’s most unusual aquarium.

Harry the crab lives in the Discovery Area of the Atlantis Submarine Voyage attraction at the Legoland Windsor resort.

He immediately stands out from the crowd with his custom-made red, yellow and blue shell made of Lego bricks.

Senior Aquarist, Liane Riley explained: “Hermit crabs have soft bodies which need protecting, but they don’t have their own shells.

“They solve this problem by salvaging for empty sea shells and literally moving in but 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.”
