Crabs vary in size and continue to grow as they age. Female crabs are identified by their light greenish color whilst male crabs are of a darker brown. There is one family of crabs in each crab nest.
Crabs can be dragged when alive or dead, but can only be picked up and placed in the player's inventory when dead.
At random times a new crab will be born for every female crab, provided that there is a male crab in the nest. It is possible to exterminate a nest of crabs by killing all of the females and letting the males die out, or vice versa.
Crabs are found in abundance. They are easy to catch while using a crude spear or a pocket knife to kill them and can be cooked using a campfire. One cooked crab provides one bar of hunger. Consuming raw crabs can induce vomiting. Rock shards are an efficient tool to use to kill crabs, as rock shards have infinite durability, and the player will be able to conserve their knife and/or axe durability.
- Despite the crab's size, after a crab has been killed and placed into the player's inventory, once thrown back onto the ground, the crab will change size to the default crab size.
