It's not pink, nor is it Glitzy, but it'll have to do.

The 7½-year-old star of TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo added a new member to her eclectic petting zoo on Tuesday: a hermit crab named Hermie.

Hailing from Panama City Beach, Fla., the crawly crustacean is barely perceptible in the pageant queen's Facebook photo, but honestly, we think it's probably just hiding from the inevitable limelight it's soon to receive.

A word of advice to the new guy: If Hermie expects to take the place of pet pig Glitzy (returned to his breeder last year) as Honey Boo Boo's secret weapon on the pageant circuit, he's going to have to stop being such a hermit!
