The Red King Crab is found in underwater in the ocean. Its shadow is large and it moves in a straight line.
The Red King Crab can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"These are one of the most popular and sought-after species of crab in the world. They have eight legs, including their claws, but also two small legs under their carapace, making 10 in all. At full size, their leg span can easily reach more than one yard wide, making them big ocean dwellers. Their thick legs are packed with meat, making them a prized catch for many fishers around the world."
Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:
"I got a red king crab! Nice to meet you, Your Highness!"
