Adult: Bigger Nipper.
A Giant crab is a pet players may obtain after reaching 40 Summoning and completing the Freeing Pirate Pete subquest of Recipe for Disaster. To receive a Baby Giant Crab players must kill the Mogres at Mudskipper Point (32 Slayer required), until they receive a Crunchy claw token, which is an uncommon 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 5-15% hunger a Baby Giant Crab gains, it grows by 1%. It takes approximately 10 hours for it to become an adult.
The style of crab you receive is random from the five types below.
- If you talk to the crab while wearing a Crab claw or Crab helmet it will say that it has no weak point and that you can't hit it for massive damage, a reference to the [Enemy Crab meme].
- '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.'
- When you ask Murphy to go diving with your crab out, he says that it wouldn't react well to going underwater despite crabs being aquatic organisms. But if you let a baby giant crab out right when you get one from Nung while you are diving you can have it with you.
