Giant Crab (4e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
These crabs are as big as a horse. They live in underground lakes and attack everything that looks like prey. In rare cases, they are tamed by Drow to devour intruders in aquatic areas.
A character knows the following information with a successful nature check.
DC 15: These creatures are found in the underdark. They hunt for prey and can be tamed.
DC 20: A Giant Crab may be strong, but is easily distracted by food.
DC 25: A Giant Crab is cold-blooded and is weak to low temperatures.
Giant Crabs will sometimes team up with other predators, but only if they will benefit from this. If tamed, they will obey as long there is not a particular more interesting thing at the battlefield.
