|Urist likes giant horseshoe crabs for their ability to hide in sand.|
|This article is about an older version of DF.|
- A huge monster in the form of a horseshoe crab.
Giant horseshoe crabs are 100 times the size of regular horseshoe crabs, making them slightly larger than a llama. Giant horseshoe crabs are amphibious creatures found in ocean biomes, and are normally non-threatening. Theoretically, giant horseshoe crabs could appear as mounts during a siege, however no ocean-inhabiting civilization exists to ride them into battle.
Giant horseshoe crabs can be tamed as exotic pets, though their pet value is the same as most other giant creatures. Some dwarves prefer giant horseshoe crabs for their ability to hide in sand.
