‘Another Crab’s Treasure’ Reminds Us That Hermit Crabs Are Amazing

No matter how much of a gamer you are, you’ll love this new game. 🎮 Another Crab’s Treasure, released for PlayStation 5, Windows, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox Series X/S, is all about a hermit crab named Kril who goes on an epic adventure to buy back his shell and discovers dark secrets behind pollution in the ocean. 🤯

Another Crab’s Treasure is a Soulslike game—like Elden Ring—with a vast undersea world to explore. Playing as Kril, you’ll need to wear trash around you instead of a shell as you battle opps on your journey to buy back your repossessed shell. 🦀🌊

You’ll travel through kelp forests, coral reefs, sandcastle cities, and even deep-sea trenches while navigating the cans, bottles, fishing nets, and other trash that pollutes the ocean. Plus, you can learn magical adaptations from different animals and make their powers your own. 😮✨

Hermit Crabs Are Social, Sensitive Animals

This game does a good job of hyping hermit crabs, who are social, sensitive animals facing serious threats. The hermit crab industry snatches them from their ocean homes and ships them to malls and surf shops so that anyone can buy them on a whim. 😰 In nature, hermit crabs have large social groups and can live for more than 30 years, but in captivity, they’re usually caged alone and die within a few months. 😱 Help hermit crabs avoid this misery—never buy them.

Another Crab’s Treasure also gives a depressingly realistic view of how our trash clutters animals’ homes. 😩 Besides being rude af, polluting is dangerous—animals can get caught in or ingest our trash and be painfully killed. 😭

Want to help prevent marine animals like Kril from being harmed by our trash? Start “trash fishing” (aka “fishing” litter out of water). It’s a great way to enjoy natural settings like peaceful ponds and help animals at the same time. 🥰 Pick up more tips on how to clean up the world for animals—squirrels, birds, raccoons, and others need your help! 🐿️🐦🦝
