Expand-O-Shell

The Brief

Janice Tabin

Hermit crabs will change shells when they grow too big or uncomfortable in them. Our project is a hermit crab shell that expands when the animal grows, so it is not needed to change shells as often, and the crab can have a more comfortable and personalized fit. This also helps solve the problem hermit crabs face of finding a new vacant shell in the wild.
