Hey people. For my birthday, my wife brought home a crab for me. Wasn't that nice? In case you're not sure, yes, it was nice. We named him Strad and put him in our tank along with our two Tinfoil Barbs, Carl and Spaulding, and our Tiger Barb, Eastwood. I'm not sure he's happy in there. It's hard to tell. He has found a home for himself in hole in a piece of driftwood. He occasionally brandishes a menacing claw from in there. The above is not a portrait of Strad, but rather a detail from my upcoming children's book Are You a Horse. Be sure to buy the book and read it to find out whether the cowboy hero (left) is talking to a horse in this picture.
