Hermit crabs are usually found with shells on their backs, which are vacated snail shells. There are also times when they can be seen inhabiting pieces of word, stone, or plastic.
Japanese artist Aki Inomata launched a wonderful project that provided awesome shelter for hermit crabs.
Using a 3-D printer, he made city-designed shells made out of clear plastic, which gives an elegant style to the crabs.
His project is titled “Why Not Hand Over a ‘Shelter’ to Hermit Crabs?”
Below is a video on how the shells were made and how the hermit crabs adapted to their new homes.
