Doc, I’ve got crabs. They’re all over my feet though. It’s a crustacean infestation. Can you prescribe something?

These little fellas can be found scurrying along the beach in Ko Libong, Thailand. Many of them favour travelling in shells like this chap here. I like to think of them as mobile homes for hermits (I think that’s the type of crab this is).

Then again, if I lived in a mobile home, I’d probably be a hermit too.
