Dungeness Crab - Blather's Fascinating Fact
|The Dungeness crab wears a pretty fan-shaped shell that's often done up in purple hues. But eye-catching colors aside, this fellow can be surprisingly hard to spot! That's because the Dungeness crab is something of an expert hider. When scared, it plays a nifty trick! That is, it buries itself beneath the sand with impressive speed. "Now you see me, now you don't," it says as it vanishes before your very eyes!|
How To Catch A Dungeness Crab
Rather Large And Moves Slowly
The Dungeness Crab has a large shadow, but moves significantly slower than other large-shadowed creatures that can be caught during the same time of year, such as the Lobster and Red King crab. You'll be able to catch the Dungeness Crab by swimming behind it carefully and pressing A!
Catchable At Any Time Of The Day
The Dungeness Crab spawns throughout the whole day. It's possible to go after at any time, so you won't have to worry about waiting!
Chase After It With The ’A’ Button!
You won't have to slow your swimming down when approaching this Sea Creature, as its movements are very slow! Dive and swim straight at it - you should be able to catch it with no problems. It is somewhat rare, however, so the hard part will likely be finding it in the first place!
