  1. So here he was, hanging out in my garden... but then CHOP!!
  2. Ocean down our way has been pretty rough, so time to hit the beach again. Main mission was to get some nice bone for a side project but good crabs are always priority. @Doctor Mud couldnt make it due to flying from Australia and getting back before work on monday was a "bit of a mission". Only a couple of photos sorry because it started *raining sideways* and my phone was getting covered in sand and water and popped up with a warning that the plug hole was getting wet. The Cliffs have been moving and with some really big rocks that rolled 10 meters or so out across the beach so I was very cautious around the cliffs. I know its probably not, but this looked to me like a shark tooth negative... I'm sure I've seen this one before... I threw this feller out onto the beach for my return journey incase I didnt come across anything better - however I didnt pick it up on the way back. Anyway after here it got too wet for the camera, and even my hunting wet weather gear was starting to soak through so no more photos. The beach was not good, churned up but a lot was buried - then I came across an old friend. I found him a few months ago but had a full backpack. Have tried to find him on a couple of trips since but no luck. But - 150 metres to the north of when he was last seen - my back moaned as I flipped the rock and I knew I was committed. You cant leave one behind when nature has done such a good job already.. @mamlambo - I see your 23 KG and raise you 10KG
  3. Tumidocarcinus giganteus

    From the album Crustaceans

    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).

  7. While this crab wasnt too special, it was the first I found with my brother, so I have been using it as an "experience" crab... then I found the flabellum and thought it was cool so have left it there... Now I have a little bit better prepping gear and more patience I investigated something else I saw on the top... Of course I have a suspicion but have been wrong just about every time... Its about 3-4mm long. Can anyone give me any idea what it may be? Apologies for photos, they were taken with my cell as I cant find my macros for my dslr. Waipara formation - 12MYA.
