She shells sea shells

This is almost enough to make me want a pet hermit crab. Aki Inomata, a Japanese artist, made these (and other) 3D printed ‘shelters’ for some hermit crabs.

 

Here’s a video of moving day.

Retreating into a bottle

I’d like to live in a beer bottle one day. I think this is probably someone’s pet. The site I found it on wasn’t too sure. But they were hippies – and we can’t expect too much from hippies. I have a new goal in life… not to live in a beer bottle – but to have a crab living inside a broken beer bottle.
