  1. Hello guys I’d like to share with you some from my collection hope you enjoy. I only collect crabs .....
  2. New I'd Maeandricampus starri of a old crab. I like to have the PDF of the journal for my collection but I cant seem to find it.
  3. I purchased this from Indonesia, I have seen a lot available and was not real expensive. It is stuck in matrix that is very solid, the crab is exposed and polished. Hard to tell if it is real or some kind of cast mold in a concrete mixture for matrix. Wanted to see if anyone knew for sure or not. Is there some possible tests on the matrix to see if it is glued or concrete mixture?
  4. Out of the countless New Jersey cretaceous crab claws I've seen and found this has to be one of the strangest claw partials yet. Seems to be an ornamented shell as apposed to the smooth claw textures that are typically found. Definitely a very interesting piece, anyone have any ideas on a possible species or if any ornamental crabs have found in nj cretaceous, or any other new jersey cretaceous hunters ever come across one similar? Definitely a head scratcher
  5. I found a really good concretion a few months ago here in New Zealand and didn't want to try prep it myself as I am still very much a beginner. Luckily, @DLB was willing to help me out and did an amazing prep job - both sides! It's by far the best crab in my collection, and very well travelled after it's 24 000km (15 000mi) flight It measures 16cm (6.25") across. I made a video of me finding it, sending it off, and opening it which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4cqpVKsOO0 Thanks for the amazing prep job @DLB!
  6. I just picked up this small fossilized crab, I am told it is from the Oligocene period and was found in the Lincoln Formation SW Washington. My research leads me to believe it is a Pulalius Vulgaris. If anyone can confirm its identity I'd be grateful. There are also these cylindrical cross sections seen in the second picture. Are these fragments of limbs, buried under the matrix or something else?
  7. I went on a fossil trip to the state of Washington and bought a bunch of fossil concretions, agatized Aturia and clams and a couple other odd things. Whilst buying and making trade deals, part of one deal was to do my majic on this large crab in a concretion. Funny thing is, I knew this crab from several years ago. I offered the guy who found this crab money for it every year for a few years but he just didnt want to let go of it. I cant blame him, its a really big crab. He had traded it to my new freind for a really really nice and really exspensive agatized Aturia. As part of a trade I
  8. I dont know if this is the appropriate place to ask but I thought I would go to the source to ask. Looking for people that have some crab from NZ that they wouldn't mind working a deal. trade or sell. PM me if you or someone you know can help. It's one of the fossils I'm looking to add to the collection and since I love to prep it should be a win win.
  9. It was 2 or 3 years ago right here on The Fossil Forum when guy posted a picture of this crab concretion and I got sooooooo excited that I had to message him and ask him if we could make a deal. yWell, we did make a deal, and its been sittin in my garage since then. Ive looked at it many, many, many times and was always scared to get started on it. Well,, today, I brought it out again and took a really good look at it. and yes, i was scared all over again! I could not read ventral or dorsal for the life of me just like all the other times ive looked at this thing ! Being a very big con

    Tumido Prep Number 3

    Time to start crab number 3. The first one was a "starter crab" incomplete but good to practice on. The second was a big sucker - finally got the proper tools towards the end. Took over 200 hours using engravers - never again! Engravers do nowhere near the same job as the ME-9100 and microjack. The rock just doesn't flake offf as well. Particularly for bulk matrix removal. I spotted this concretion and no evidence for a crab was there. No legs. So I split it open It's about 30 cm across. So quite a large concretion for this locality. Looks like all the legs are there, right to the tips. Y
  15. I'm looking for a very experienced crab prepper for two concretions I've had sitting in my garage for a while. One I believe is some type of Raninidae from the Lincoln Creek formation. The other is a Cretaceous lobster from the Bearpaw shale which based on the preservation of the tips of the claws and tail protruding I think it's going to be a killer one. I'd prep them myself but I've got years of trilobite prep projects already lined up.
  16. TFF member MB has coauthored another excellent paper on a spectacular crab from the Grayson Formation in Waco, Texas. This exciting discovery represents one of only a few times a fossil crab with composite eyes is preserved and probably the first occurrence of three-dimensional crab eyes in the fossil record. Congrats Àlex!! Vega, F.J., Jackson, J., & Ossó, À (2014) Exceptional preservation of a late Cenomanian (Late Cretaceous) crab from Texas, U.S.A. Boletín de la Sociedad Geológica Mexicana 66(1):215-221 OPEN ACCESS PDF
  17. Another boxed up find from cleaning out the garage this weekend. It's a crab concretion I collected years ago from the Lincoln Creek formation. It's certainly not one of the more common crabs from there, and based on some initial research appears like it could possibly be a Raninidae. Kinda hard to tell because it's broken on the underside and there's a jumble of legs and claws. Any insight would be appreciated.
