Me and My Pet

Little Nippa… Emma Gascoyne is pictured with her treasured pet hermit crab, Shelly. Photo: Alicia Zeqir.SIX-year-old Emma Gascoyne of Mooroopna is the proud owner of hermit crabs, Shelly and Spike.
Emma takes care of her “quiet and shy” pets feeding them pellets, cucumber and bananas.
As a North Melbourne supporter, Emma has also prepared new shells decorated in blue and white for the crabs when they out-grow their current homes.
Living in a tank complete with a ‘Hermie Hut’, the crabs sometimes come out to play, in the past hiding-out in all kinds of places including shoes and under the couch.
