The Snow Crab is found in underwater in the ocean. Its shadow is large and it moves away from the player.
The Snow Crab can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Snow crabs live in the deep sea and are know mostly as a highly prized winter delicacy. When cooked, the typically dark-red shell turns to the beautiful bright-red color most commonly seen. They have a life span of 20 years and gradually grow bigger while periodically molting. If a leg is lost, it will grow back when molting occurs. The female is about half the size of the male."
Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:
"I got a snow crab! 'Sno problem, really!"'
