Crab?

Recommended Posts

This is both sides of what looks to me like portions of a crab. I found this yesterday on the central Oregon coast, Astoria Fm. I believe. I found a few very odd things which I will share for group consideration. I am a newbie and welcome any input.

Looks like crab to me, with a nice cross section of the claw.

Hope so, finding crab is on my bucket list. :)

Hard to tell but it looks like you have most of the crab most likely missing the other claw but still really nice.

Yes I would say that is a crab! It could use some more prep but it is kind cool just the way it is with the claw worn down.

Prep is way above my skill set currently. Still worried about doing damage.
