    Crabs should spawn on beaches next to oceans

    Here's a possible recipe for crab traps: 8 iron bars surrounding a raw chicken (the raw chicken is the bait.)

    I love crabs. Would be fun to see them walking around beaches and underwater.

    Crabs should drop claws, useful maybe for brewing or crafting. Crab meat cooked sounds great, but i think claws could have numerous possibilities. Maybe you can catch a crab by fishing rope as well as finding them swimming like other fish. But more likely rarer than fish. Crabs could be spawned strictly in coral reefs with the ability to walk on beaches for some time before having to return into the water, they may try to claw a chicken or something similar to wolves and sheep.
    These are just my opinions but yeah crabs would be a great addition.

    Crustations seems like a good idea, as turtles seem to be the only activity around the shore. I have proposed adding nautilus, which eat crustations IRL, so they could be good additions together!

    I like the idea the crabs should be neutral until you attack them they should be really fast and could do between half hearth and 1 and a half of damage. The crab traps should also be used for fish.

    Я бы очень сильно хотел чтобы крабов и ловушки на них добавили в майнкрафт! А разработчики медлят

    I've been hoping for a complete overhaul of beaches, Adding crabs & hermit crabs would certainly make them feel more beachy.

    I like the idea of crab claws being used. Maybe crabs can drop crab claws to make something for offense and lobsters can drop lobster shells for something defensive. Maybe to craft “crusty armor” that’s between the level of leather and gold armor but new armor is a touchy thing to add. Something more than “just another food source” or “a piece of armor players skip in favor of iron”

    Not Red! They are already cooked when red! More like yellow or blue

    also make crawfish spawn in rivers!

    I think that we should have lobsters on the seafloor in all ocean biomes and are territorial, as well as very large. Crabs could be featured as well but I’d rather see them exclusive to Beaches, Warm Oceans, and Lukewarm Oceans basing them off of tropical amphibious crabs (think Mr. Krab’s species from Spongebob in appearance).

    Hear me out, the crating recipe should be as follows: S - string. W - wooden slab(any variant)

    W W W

    S  S  S

    W W W

    or

    W W W

    S       S

    W W W

    After being placed in the water you can place raw meat into the cage and it would appear in the cage similar to campfires and their meat appearing on the logs.

    In my Opinion the Crabs should also drop Crabclaws with them you can craft Clawhooks or a Clawspeer and the claws can also used as a "bad" scissor :)

    I always whanted this when the sea life like fish and stuff came out

    The crab trap recipe could be for iron bars on the edge and trapdoor.

    The addition of hermit crabs would be good as well as they’re literally used as a marketing scheme, as impossible and unreal as it sounds. They’re marketed as cheap, easy to care for throwaway pets so people can get more money of them, but as a matter of fact, if you don’t feed them the poison you get for them where they’re sold marketed as “hermit crab food”, and give them proper care and housing, they can live up to decades!
