"Staghorn Hermit Crab" (Manucomplans varians)
…a unique species of Pagurid hermit crab that occurs in the northeastern and southeastern Pacific Ocean, ranging from the Gulf of California to Panama.. Like other hermit crabs M. varians will find and use the shells of snails to house its soft body parts. True to what their common name suggests staghorn hermit crabs are almost always seen with a specific species of coral (Nanaria mirabilis) growing on their back. The corals typically grow quite large and create several striking spirals all while being carried around by M. varians. It is unknown if the coral being present has any negative effects on M. varians and it might even serve as a sort of defense/camouflage as M. varians can retreat into the coral and ‘seal’ itself inside using its claw.

Hey guys? I just found a KILLER set of heels (available in this shop! ). Every scale is made from faux leather that’s hand-painted (and, apparently you can choose your own color! Bonus!). There’s more examples that can be seen in the link, so if you’re crazy about mermaids, and want some high heels to show that love, she’s the expert to go to!
