Hello people,

for the week end you have here some pics of one of the latest crabs I'm prepping, it comes from a big one of you, and I'm thinking it could be a very good sample when prepped.

Following the latest tendency, there are picutres of after and before, enjoy them and have a terrific week end :)

This has to be among the most viewed and longest running threads on the Forum. It's alway worth another look....

Hey all :)

As promis, here some pictures of a crab that I'm prepping for a friend, a "Kimengani crab" it seems means the devil's mask.

In fact is an extant species of Dorippe, perhaps D. frascone. and not very old in age, but is a terrific fossil, and curiously, very, very hard to prep.

when finised, I'll post more pictures.

enjoy

:)

Hi people :)

My holidays began ad I tried to reach my cleaning crabs target for those days.

After some touch on crabs for study, I began this one but and I consider that that already is sufficiently finished.

What do you think, guys? :blush:
