Awesome! Wish I had a crab site like this near me.

 

By the way, how does it look from the side?

Only if the bulk of the preparation was done this month. ;)

  Really cool prep.  I have always thought about doing both dorsal and ventral but have never gotten around to putting in that much time.  Great specimen fella!

Makes me wonder if someone has done a 3-D or nearly 3-D prep job on one of these.

Thanks RB! Was really nice seeing it go from a concretion in the sand to a prepped crab :)
