At Large Escapee Scared the Crab Out of Me!!

Recently escaped Thomas the Hermit Crab was found last night. As I was doing the midnight check on the boys and going to the bathroom, in the dark so not to wake anyone, I felt a creature crawling across my foot. First reaction was, COCKROACH, and I jumped up to turn on the light and it was Thomas.

After about 5 minutes of trying to catch my breath, I picked him up and put him back in his cage. I am guessing he was in the bathroom looking for water since it has been 4 days since his escape. I guess you could call it an escape. Ashton was playing with him and then got sidetracked and forgot to put him back in his cage.

The joy of family creatures.
