Number 4 in the Ogasawara series is the Purple pincher hermit crab (Coenobita purpureus). This figurine measures roughly 6cm in length and is life-size. A very realistic looking figurine indeed!  ^-^

A great figurine - can you remove the base?

Yes, the hermit crab can be detached from the base.

Yay, what a wonderful crustacean figure! :) The shell apparently belongs to a giant land snail, Achatina sp.

Thanks brontodocus! That's very interesting info! No wonder the shell reminded me of the large snails that are found where I live (Malaysia) after the rain. As kids, we used to sprinkle salt on the snails and then watch them sizzle and ooze :o
