New Pet

The other day when my husband was entering our house in the evening he saw something running sideways next to his foot... turned out to be a 15 cm (6 inches) long crab with big claws!

Since we live a 10 minute drive from the seaside, it probably didn't walk to our neigborhood, but more likely escaped from someone who had bought it to make soup. The local specialty Palmnut soup is not quite the same without whole, fresh crabs, hence they are bought alive.

The - in my eyes enormous - crab has now been adopted as our pet and lives in a cold box in our kitchen feeding off toast and tomato. However, it doesn't have a name yet. What do you think we should name it?

In conclusion, there is not only rain in Africa, but also plenty of seafood!
