sorry the pics are pretty bad, I can try and get better ones if need be ;)

the level of detail in this piece is outstanding, especially given its size, every individual join is minutely detailed
as near as I can tell the accuracy is also amazing, but its difficult to say since I don't know the species its intended to represent
the crab itself is one solid piece, and the 2 shells are interchangeable which is a feature I've had great enjoyment with
shown for comparison are the other 2 I have in the series, but there are many I don't have

Pagurus samuelis is a small hermit crab, at up to a total length of 40 mm (1.6 in) and a carapace width of up to 19 mm (0.75 in). The base colour of the exoskeleton is brown or green, but the antennae are red, and adults have bright blue bands near the tips of their legs. In smaller individuals, the bands may be white. The legs and carapace are covered in setae, and the rostrum at the front of the carapace is triangular.

scale is approximately 1:1.5


Lovely figure  ^-^. The optional shells are a really nice detail  ^-^.

It looks great when the shell is attached! :) And tiny even compared to the others. :o


its smaller than most terrestrial specimens I've seen
the native aquatic ones tend to average about that size however
