Swap Meet

I don't have a clue why this happens -

Every low tide, clusters of hermit crabs gather and rummage over each other.

Kinda like a garage sale where people can buy the shirt off your back.

Not sure if there is aggression - like "I'm bigger than you so I'm going to yank you out of this shell and take it because it fits me better anyways", or if everything is completely mutual.

Probably the former.

I can't get to the answer because everytime I come close, they stop what they are doing and close up.

Go figure.
