Giant crab: Misc

A Giant crab is a pet a player may have at level 40 Summoning and have completed the Freeing Pirate Pete subquest of Recipe for Disaster. To receive a Baby Giant Crab players must kill Mogres, which require 32 Slayer, until they receive a Crunchy claw token, which is a rare drop. Then players wearing a diving apparatus and fishbowl helmet can go underwater at Port Khazard and talk to Nung. He will exchange a Baby Giant Crab for the Crunchy Claw Token.

The crab eats any type of raw fish. For every 15% hunger a Baby giant crab gains, it grows by 1%.



The giant crabs have five known colors so far:

  • 'I is going to eat you, little fishies!' May be a reference from the hit British TV Series Red Dwarf, where The Cat frequently said 'I'm gonna eat you, little fishies.'
  • The crab occasionally floats in mid air when its owner leads it to a set of stairs.
  • One cannot have more than one baby crab, as attempting to cash in another crunchy claw token results in nung saying there are no more left.
