Alexis was in Sanibel, Fl looking for some pretty shells when she found this one. She picked it up only to find there was something else that had thought that shell was pretty! She said that the little animal tried to nick her with its sharp digging “claw” while she held him up for the camera! His googly eyes are SO cute!
