Skin a faceted crystal crab shell
Other ?
The multi-faceted shell of this oversized crab resembles a massive oval gem.  Underneath the protective covering are its formidable claws and pincers, the front pair easily the largest.  The creature's eyestalks peer about nervously at even the slightest sound.

Hunting strategies

The crab will sometimes retreat back into its shell, although it is unknown what effect this has on its DS.

Other information

Also called a glittering crystalline crab.
