Be part of the Project Shellter crowd-science experiment!

Please add a comment with the video time-stamp if you see a crab encounter in this video:

* Crab Encounter of the First Kind: Examination (touching inside and outside of a printed shell with claws and legs)
* Crab Encounter of the Second Kind: Switching (moving from current shell into a printed shell and maybe back)
* Crab Encounter of the Third Kind: Adoption (switching into a printed shell and staying there!)
