Lava crabs are harmless critters found on the lava worlds of Redstone III[1][2] and New Folsom.[3] They're small, red and have the ability to burrow.

Lava crabs spend time in the low-lying areas, but move out of them before the lava rises. In the highlands, the crabs burrow and await the receding of the lava so they can once again enter the lowlands.[1]

Game UnitEdit

Lava crabs cannot be selected, but can be targeted.[1]


Similar lava crabs appear in World of Warcraft.
