Thanks, Jetoar! :) And in contrast to the AAA crabs (at least those I know) this one was sculpted rather than being cast from a dried specimen. At least a U.S. sculptor would have no problems getting a real specimen as a guideline, Callinectes sapidus is very popular as food and easily available. ;D
