Its Not Un-Natural, Just a Very Large Hermit Crab

23 November 2008 No Comment

image You truly can’t leave any stone unturned when you come to Belize and the Belize Barrier Reef.  You  never know what you might find.  If you are exploring through the rainforest,  you may come across some amazing plants and animals, and maybe even  Mayan artifacts.

On the beaches, you might even run into one of our locals, crawling around  with their home on their backs, ambassadors to visitors, ambassadors to  those that might visit by land or by sea.  😉

Hermit Crab as Big as My Head

“HUGE hermit crab on Caye Caulker, Belize,  Central America. This amazing critter lives in the  Mini-Reserve (run by the Caye Caulker  Branch of  the Belize Tourism Industry Association) just north  of the  airstrip. I honestly could not believe my eyes  when I saw how huge  this crab was.”

This guest to Belize is amazed at the size of this hermit crab.  Whether  you are in the Chaa Creek preserve or on the beaches of Belize, one of the  amazing aspects about visiting us is the potential for seeing nature in a  natural state.  Those words may sound redundant, but the redundancy  should sound affirmative.

Nature is meant to be natural, and these days in  too many areas of the world, this would be an exception to the rule.  Fortunately, you can still find natural wonders in Belize, on the beaches, in  the rain forest and under many, many un-turned stones and shells….
