Looks like you've got one just underneath the missing claw....

Is that a second crab in there?

Dustin, that crab doesn't look like the regular Washington nodule crabs we are used to seeing.  Where is it from? 

I would think if someone did happen to have a spare claw laying about ( miracle in itself ), you would be hard pressed to have it match that yellow color of the rest your crab. :look:

no it's from Italy and it's a Macropipus tuberculatus crab. I believe they all have a yellow color to them.

  Yeah, that crab looks to be from Italy.  Cant those anymore. Ive got one or two of these someplace?  Finding them would be a nightmare.  Just keep looking, you never know what or when one will show up?

@DLB it looks pretty good where it's at. Nothing in life is really ever perfect. I think this Italian crab looks crab-tacular! :yay-smiley-1:

This is a Portunus monspeliensis (A. Milne-Edwards, 1860).

granulatus is an unvalid synonymous.

:unsure:
