Although pronounced like the animal crab, this creature doesn't really look like one.
It has the head of a wolf, red glowing eyes but the body of a human. It can run up to a speed of 12 mph and is deadly poisonous.
The origin of the name comes from the way the creature prowls/runs, moving in a zig-zag motion like a crab.
The Q is the first letter of the founder's first name, Quill Christiansen from the late 1890's.
They quickly reproduce every two minutes in the spring every 30 years. They can only have the maximum of 10 offspring each.
Each Qrabbe can live to be 500-800 years.
