There were ambient hermit crabs. Wherever you walked along the beach you would find 1-2 inch long scuttling hermit crabs. One evening, walking back through the hotel garden, we found this little crab right in the middle of the path. We adopted him as a pet for the evening. We named him “Leaving,” because he kept trying to leave. He had very good survival instincts. We shared some fresh star fruit with him at dinner and he lit Chanukah candles with us, then we tucked him back into his garden at bedtime.
