Hermit Crab Pendant

$25.75

Why go to all the effort of secreting a chitinous exoskeleton when you can turn yourself into an impregnable mobile fortress with a discarded snail shell? This pendant celebrates the remarkable hermit crabs, adorable crustaceans that can be found in aquatic (and some terrestrial) habitats worldwide.

This highly detailed hermit crab, finished in antiqued pewter, resides within a shell that is finished in antiqued brass. Loosen the screw on the back of the shell to remove the crab from its home and see all of the details of its external anatomy. A great educational accessory for aquarium and hermit crab keepers, marine biologists, and anyone who loves the sea!

Comes with an adjustable-length 2mm diameter leather necklace cord and a colorful anatomical diagram.
