The Crab

This is Dori’s crab Scallops, and Dori’s dead fish (I forgot its name). The crab usually scurries around the tank, leaving the swimming fish alone. We assume this fish died on its own accord, but Scallops was very proud of his find and would NOT let go of the fish.



Scallops molted a few weeks ago. The new crab shell was grey, but within a day, Scallops trademark red claws were back. The shell got a ride to school to visit the fourth grade class.
