Tumidocarcinus giganteus



Tumidocarcinus giganteus crab from the New Zealand Miocene. These crabs are incredibely difficult to prepare. This one required roughly 20 hours to prepare. The carapace nor the overall exoskeleton preserved well as there are a lot of cracks but the orange, pinkish hue is a bit unique considering most of these crabs have a dark brown exoskeleton. This crab is roughly 8.5 inches in diameter from tip to tip (legs).
