About

These towering hard-shelled crabs are usually found on remote beaches far from busy port cities. They use their massive pincers to grab and crush anything that threatens their territory. When they aren’t hunting, these crabs often bury themselves in the sand to sleep until something disturbs their slumber. These crabs are agile for their size and are protected by a thick and durable exoskeleton. Anyone who defeats a huge crab finds a vast quantity of delicious meat.
