LET THE CRABS BE CRABS

I was totally disgusted with your Nov. 29 picture and story about teen-agers carrying hermit crabs around their necks as jewelry. As a parent, in an admittedly sick world, I have tried to teach my children that all life, no matter how small, is to be treated with respect. Hermit crabs are living creatures, requiring a house, food and water. They should not be dangling out of their shell for hours on end for somebody's amusement.
