Necessity and the Daughter of Invention :)

What do you do if you have a pet hermit crab and want to let him "play" in the backyard without losing him?

You put him on a "leash" and tie the leash to a stake.

How do you attach a leash to a hermit crab? I don't think they really have a neck that you can loop something around do they?

Well the girl (my daughter of invention) just placed some Silly Putty on the shell of her crab and attached some twine to the Silly Putty. The twine was attached to a stake set in the ground.

So far it's been working we need to get a patent for it??

Great Idea! She could also make a little fence to keep it in :)

That is so funny! A lot of thought was put into that idea!
