Not an insect but still in the arthropod family, this bot was inspired by the cracked shell it carries (found at a local park).
This Hermit Crab Bot is based on the anatomical structure of living hermit crabs (which are a bit freaky). He is not permanently attached to his shell, as his abdomen was built to curl into the shell much like a living hermit crab does.
Hermit Crab Bot
- He is an original sculpture made of wire, clay, and wooden beads. He is a free standing sculpture (neither affixed to a base or his shell).
- His dimension are 3 1/2″ wide, 3 1/2″ front to back, 3″ tall. He is extremely fragile and should be handled sparingly, very gently, and is most definitely not a toy.
Comes complete with…
Fishbowl Terrarium (7″ diameter, round): for safe and fun display *also causes viewers to initially think it’s a real crab (hehe)*
Natural sand and Shells (aproximately 2 1/2 cups): to mimic artificial crab’s natural habitat
This is a one of a kind work of art, never to be exactly reproduced.
