Caretakers- The Sponge Crab
Caretakers are those magical entities who take it upon themselves, quite literally and figuratively, to protect and care for the smaller more magical worlds that are scattered throughout our own.
The Sponge Crab is one such creature. Generally covering themselves with living Sponge to hide from predators, this particular gent guards a miniature aquatic ecosystem and all its tiny residents.
