Hermit crabs are creatures in the Fallout 4 add-on Far Harbor and Fallout 76.

Characteristics

The hermit crab still resembles its unmutated pre-War ancestor closely both in appearance and habits, with the only major difference being its immense size. Towering head and shoulders over any human, hermit crabs are far too large to protect their vulnerable abdomen by squeezing it into an empty gastropod shell. Instead, they use wrecked vehicles to facilitate their ambush hunting style.

Variants

Hermit crab hatchlings are identical to mirelurk hatchlings. They look similar (except the color of the skin), show the same behavior and are equally weak in combat, although they can swarm the player character in large numbers.
