Bug Catching


Spineshell Crabs can be found at any time of day among the sand and shallows of Bahari Bay, including Coral Shores, Lighthouse Lagoon, Beachcomber Cove, and the Flooded Fortress.


Spineshell Crabs are easily spotted among the more common Bahari Crabs due to their large size and deep purple shells, though their darker color might make them more difficult to spot underwater.

Once alerted by player movement or Smoke Bombs, the Spineshell Crab will flee in a straight line before eventually burying into the sand and disappearing. Although the Spineshell Crab does not stop moving once it is startled, its slow speed and large size makes it a fairly easy target to hit.


Spineshell Crab does not grant any Silk Thread when caught. There is a chance Spineshell Crab will grant a Bluebell Flower Bluebell Flower when caught.
