Why is that plastic bottle cap moving? Oh! A hermit crab is using it as a
shell!
怎麼有塑膠瓶蓋在移動呢? 原來有寄居蟹把它當作外殼!

Hermit crabs don't have their own shells. But they need one to live. Most
hermit crabs use sea snail shells. But people are seeing hermit crabs using
our plastic trash as their shells! They're seeing this all over the world!
寄居蟹沒有自己的外殼,但是牠們需要殼才能活下去。通常牠們用海螺的殼。可是現在到處都有人看到寄居蟹用塑膠垃圾當作外殼。

It can make walking around easier for these crabs. But some plastic may be
bad for their health.

ways to reuse plastic!
