Crabs
Crab
Crabs are small, water-loving monsters, commonly seen creatures, and many adventurers become very familiar with their image quite quickly. Although crabs can come in a variety of shapes and strengths, they all share a few traits; most notably, their shells provide a bit of defense (which they can boost through various means), and their strong pincers can cause more than just a few bruises and minor cuts, especially against adventurers who don't keep their wits about them.

Crabs are sometimes hunted for their meat, which can be cooked into a number of delicious dishes, and their shells, which are durable and yet fairly easy to work with.
