Crabby Cryonics

Does anybody have any experience with doing taxidermy on crabs?

I caught this one live from the bay, about 4", uncooked, and it's currently residing in the freezer until I determine if it's possible to immortalize him. I was thinking maybe a paper weight? Anyone ever cast a resin like that?

He was missing an arm when I caught him, probably lost it in a fight. They can only re-grow those appendages once, unlike their legs which can re-grow many times. If only humans could do that, huh?
