I’ve always wanted a post-modern, surrealist pet.
Hermit crabs have always kind of fascinated me. I’ve had one or two over the years, mostly as a kid. They’re pretty fascinating at first. Think about it for a minute. A terrestrial crab that uses the discarded shells of other creatures for a home. Pretty weird, right? Well, ever since I first saw these crazy, little creatures, I’ve thought it would be cool to put them into clear shells so you could see just what was going on inside. Apparently, I’m not the only one.
Artist/designer Robert DuGrenier has been making glass Hermit crab shells for Hermit Crabs to live in for more than 15 years. And, now, he’s offering them for sale, too. So, yes, now we can actually have the crazy hermit crab of the future with a see-through shell.
For real, go look at these and, if you are interested at all, buy some! (No, I don’t get a cut! I just think they’re cool!) Besides, it’s Friday, why not have a little fun wasting time?
