My director at the day care center I work at gave me an aquirium and asked what kind of pet do you want for your class? We already had a guinea pig so I didn't want a another rodent, we had fish in the hallway, and we really wanted a turtles but were not allowed because of salmonilia poisoning, so A co-worker told me to get hemit crabs, but more then one because they like company. That was about 8-9 ago and now since we lost 2 crabs, and I found out that the enviroment was too stressfull for the little guys I brought them home, and I'm leaving the center and didn't want them to get forgotten. (the guinea pig died the end of march after surgery) I never would have thought I would get attached to such little creatures!!!
