Gritty has a pet hermit crab. Its name is Claw'd.
For the 7-foot Gritty, it's taken a little time to get used to caring for tiny Claw'd.
Dwelling around Wells Fargo Center, Gritty was already well aware of how popular crab fries are in Philly. He won't tolerate them anywhere near Claw'd when the two are out on a walk.
Watch the video above for more on Gritty and Claw'd in the first episode of NBC Sports Philadelphia's Pro Pets series.
