"Before becoming an artist, I studied cognitive neuropsychology at graduate school," Amanojaku to Hesomagari told Bored Panda. But they began teaching themselves sewing and found themselves naturally drawn to the animal kingdom. "There are so many unknown animals in the world. And there are many animals that are hated unfairly, too. Through my work, I am trying to show people how charming they are."

The artist said they can spend nearly a month working on a single piece. "Small ones can take me up to 3 days, while large works sometimes last 3 weeks." However, it's not just sewing. Amanojaku to Hesomagari also teams up with other professionals to make her creatures as close to their real-life counterparts as possible. "I am extremely grateful to the researchers and [nature] photographers who teach me about all the animals I'm interested in."

I'd like this one even more if it was colored like a live lobster instead of a cooked one.

So cute! Thought the wee little leggy thing was a spider, not a hermit crab, though. Love both, so *shrugs* whichever.
