Tac, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tac
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Purple Pincher Hermit Crab
Home: Westminster, Colorado, USA
   This is my sweetie, Tac. I'm not exactly sure of his age, but he's been with me for almost a year. Tac lives with me and a large family of twenty other crabs. Two other crabs are named Tic and Toe, so together they make Tic Tac Toe. Tac's about the size of a half dollar. In the picture, Tac is standing next to a dime. Tac enjoys climbing up and down my arms and hanging out on my keyboard when I'm surfing the Internet. He absolutely loves to eat grapes and coconut for a snack. He loves to be fed right from my hand. Once a week, Tac gets a bath in a dish of warm water. He runs around in the bottom of the dish frantically until he's let out. After that, he likes to climb to the top of his green vines and hang there, almost upside down. Tac is very smart for a crab and even responds to the sound of my voice. He's very special to me and makes me smile with his funny little crab antics everyday!
