Crabs can survive on dry land!

The Crab is the third ocean animal in mope.io, and the ocean equivalent of the Pig and Penguin.

Technical

The crab:

Appearance

The Crab is one of the simplest animals in the game and is pretty small. Its tail is not directly visible. Its base color is red, and its only characteristic is its image-only side claws, and without images, it actually walks forwards. It gains a new appearance when hiding inside its shell. When in the shell, it is covered by a triangle-like cover, which is a light shade of red. A little bit of the head and claws stick out when inside the shell. Crabs also have a low health range, so a shock from a stingray does a lot of damage.

Strategy

Upgrading from crab is pretty easy as now you can eat the seaweeds. They give you a lot of XP.

When you are threatened by a predator such as a squid, go onto an ocean hill (very common around the ocean) and hide in your shell. Wait there until your predator leaves. However, this will not work with turtles. If one comes by, quickly dive and look for a whirlpool to hide in.

Even though you are capable of going on land, it is not recommended to do so as you are very slow on land. Land predators such as mole can easily outrun you and if you traveled very far from any source of water, then chances are you will die. 

When hunting, try to look for shrimps and water rabbits and mice. They are very easy target as they are slow in water. You are slightly faster than shrimps (Not noticeable) so you can chase them down. Trouts are slightly harder as they have a boost ability that can outrun you. If you see one though, chase them down! Don't give up unless you are clearly much further away from it.

Like with shrimp and Trout, try looking for healing stones and sharks. Either will level you up very fast.
