"I caught the crab! Rock, paper, scissors, GAME!" —Animal Forest e+

Crabs (カニ, Kani?) are beach-going "bugs" only found in Animal Forest e+. They are worth 150 bells despite their rarity. When the player enters the acre they cannot be seen, but will suddenly dig themselves out of sand when approached. Once active crabs scuttle sideways away from the player.

Occasionally they burrow back into the sand but will appear again in the same place. However, if they travel too far from land they bury themselves permanently and cannot be unearthed again. In the museum they appear at the bottom left near the Coconut Tree.

It is slightly more common than the Hermit Crab, which shares its habitat, and both are easier to find on the island at night.

It is one of the three members of the crab family, the other two species being the Hermit and Coconut Crabs.
