Wife Bit Into Crab Meat and Found A Pearl

Pearl found in King Crab Leg
My family decided to have some King Crab legs for supper on May 9, 2009.
My wife had just pulled some of the meat from the knuckle were the leg meets the body. When she started to chew it she just about broke her tooth on what she thought was a piece of shell.
When she pulled the object from her mouth she realized it was sphere shaped. When it was all clean we could see that it was white in color and appeared to be a "pearl" like object.
We went to the computer and keyed in the words "is it possible to find pearls in crab". This site came up and we read the story about the lady who found a pearl in her crab. I do not know for sure if it is a pearl but boy does it look like one. We have included a photo for the record.
