Default Freeze Dried Blue Crabs

We were at the Core Sound Decoy Festival and the museum had a vendor that freeze dried blue crabs and then airbrushed them. I bought one because I was amazed how "alive" they look. I had never heard of such a thing but the pics don't even do them justice. He does fish and shrimp too but crabs are his specialty.

Disclaimer: I have no connection with them except as a customer.

Are they for sale, or just for temporary occasions? If the first choice, does the freeze drying process dehydrate the innards so there is no foul odor....maybe after being freeze dries the sealing process takes care of the remaining odor?

Either way, they DO look ALIVE! VERY cool. Thanks for posting this...I like!

Not sure about small kids but he wouldn't do my 25 and 26 year olds but they were bigger than him.

Apparently the freeze dried part takes out the odor, meat, etc. It was new to me.

Pete is a good friend of mine and his work is incredible.

The crabs will last forever (?) as long as you don't get them wet. You also shouldn't expose them to direct sunlight for extended periods.

How about feeding them after midnight? That cool?
