Learning about crabs using glass shells

Post by JediMasterThrash » Sun Aug 16, 2009 3:42 am

Small collection of links my wife found about hand-made blown glass shells provided to hermit crabs. The hermit crabs willingly move in, amongst a variety of shell options. Then the scientists can study how their bodies fit and behave inside of the shells, something that until now has always been out of sight.http://blog.makezine.com/archi...CMP=OTC-0D6B48984890 http://wallout.com/node/106 http://www.3news.co.nz/Man-mad...cat/221/Default.aspx

Stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking crab-herder since '92.
