Like hermit crabs, Paguro needs to protect his weak body with an external shell. However, he can only live within a dead wood branch or trunk! Living an extraordinary long time, Paguro can wait centuries before having to find a new shell! The melody from his flute is rumored to bring life to dead trees, giving them an eery crimson foliage! Those particularities gave Paguro a reputation to be a link between the dead and the living!
