Papo's Hermit Crab is a crustacean found on the European Atlantic coasts. Its soft body needs to be protected from predators hence the need for a mollusc shell adapted to its size on its back. It moves with its five pairs of legs, the first of which has two claws. However, he is far from being a hermit because he likes community life and eats everything he finds.
