Great find, the detail is amazing! Was it loose or did you have to employ quarry techniques to remove the crab? Content Quality : 10 of 10

both were actually on top of two separate boulders, in the sandier matrix. I just needed to nibble around the edges, then pry 'em off. I have a large urchin waiting over there in the same situation, but it started to rain on me, so I departed.
