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

glass-shells-1.jpg

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, well...you know. "Everybody would see you masturbate." Even the aliens! Then they'd, well...you 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.

There are Comments.
  • 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.

  • 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.
