Printed Shell Adoption! – Project Shellter

Kendall Karshellian adopted a printed shell!

After nearly 2 months of ongoing experimentation by the Project Shellter teams, on Wednesday December 07, 2011 at approximately 04:23 PM PST at the Shellter West crabitat in Los Angeles, Kendall adopted a printed shell!

Similar to the shells suggested by hermit crab caretaker and commentator wodosorel, the shell is modeled on that of the Oxystele sinensis sea snail.

Watch the entire fascinating process as she examines, switches, and adopts a 3D printed shell!

    Congrats!
    But I can’t see what’s going on at all. Maybe some narration? Annotations? Editing? Where does the old shell go at the end?

    Thanks!

    She apparently buried her existing shell then emerged to examine the printed one. I’m going to put the last two or three days of video online so that everyone can see what led up to this. Crowd-sourced science FTW!

    Yes some annotation is a good idea. I’ll see what I can do.

    Go!
