If you go crab fishing or come across any other sea creatures on your travels, please don’t bring them home with you – they are very sensitive creatures and need to be kept at a certain temperature with a good supply of sea water or they won’t survive.
Both crabs are now being cared for by experts and will be introduced to the British shore line exhibition.

Rangers at Draycote Water park near Rugby in Warwickshire say they are baffled by the mystery appearance of piles of carrots.
The mounds have been left in random places at the Severn Trent Water visitor attraction on a number of occasions.
Piles were found on:
- 31 March
- 12 May
- 16 July
- 25 July
- 1 August
They are appealing for help to find out who is leaving them at the park, and why...
– Thomas Crawford, Draycote ranger
We’re really puzzled by this one...
They don’t get eaten by wild animals like rabbits; they simply remain in little piles, so we’re picking them up.
At first we thought it was just a one off, but then more kept arriving. So we’ve been taking them to Ollie’s Yard, a sanctuary for horses and ponies, nearby.
We’d like them to be used by a good cause, but we’re also keen to understand why they’re being left at Draycote Water.
Rangers are asking anyone who might know why the carrots are being left at Draycote to tweet them.
Tortoises have been the subject of a study led by a University of Lincoln academic.
The reptiles were monitored to test their navigational skills and managed to work out how to win a strawberry by pressing the screen.
A red triangle on the screen was followed by two blue circles. The tortoises were trained to press either the left or right circle to get a strawberry.
Dr Anna Wilkinson found that when food was given to the tortoises in two blue bowls, similar to the circles, the tortoises went for the food on the same side as the circle they were trained to press.
