Found what looks to be a Pearl in a Dungeness Crab Leg

I was eating a Dungeness Crab tonite and in it I found a pearl after I bit into it. It looks to be a scallop pearl. Does this happen often? I have eaten a lot of crab and never found one till now.


3/7/08 It looks just like the scallop pearls in the picture and looks just like the one found in the King crab leg.

Hi Katie,

This is the fourth instance within the last few weeks we've heard about a pearl-like object being found in a crab.....very interesting. Any chance to see a photo? What is the size?

Thanks for sharing.
