Part of an art installation by Robert DuGrenier this happy hermit crab in a glass shell can now see his predators before they see him. He selected this shell after a molt and seems to be very happy. He was dipped in water to remove the sand just before I took this video that is why water is on his shell. He has been in his new "mobile home" since June 25th 2010. To buy glassshell.com The problem with collecting natural shell from the beach is that there is a huge shortage and the wild crabs can't find places to live. The wild population of crabs are in danger. Don't collect them from the beach!. This is my answer to help save the wild crab and also study the pet crab in captivity. Glass shells are much stronger and lighter than real shells I have never had one break in a tank only when someone dropped it out side of the cage.
