Clear Glass Crab Shells (So You Can See Their Asses)

August 6, 2012


Artist Robert DuGrenier blows clear glass shells for crabs to use so you can see their bodies inside. I'm not sure how the crabs feel about it, but if I lived in a glass house, know. "Everybody would see you masturbate." Even the aliens! Then they'd, know. "Want to come jam things up your keister." Haha, man one time I found a handful of Pixy Stix in there. "That wasn't aliens." I know -- I think it was the government.

Hit the jump for some more shots and a video of an aquatic crab with its see-through shell on.




Thanks to Shannon, who claims she once saw a hermit crab on the beach once wearing a flip-flip for a shell and it made her sad as hell.

  • If I were that scientist I would make a mirrored one, to see if the crab will be able to use a symmetrical but inverted copy >:D Just to troll one of these creatures...

  • tree crabs are awesome. I've owned these as pets since i was a kid. You can have them walk around the room, on your bed, on the kitchen table. They're sweet and non-aggressive.

  • The music in these videos seems disproportionately feisty.

  • Cocktimus Prime

    Looks like a metroid

    Gross, yet oddly enough I was just wondering the other day what they looked like underneath.

  • Crustaceans are weird.

    Gross, hermit crabs! I have lost respect for you. This is too much like Aliens.

    It looks like a good way to keep predators away. It is pretty nifty.
