The Baby Flak Crab is a critter found within the Sulphurous Sea biome after the Aquatic Scourge has been defeated, or dropped while shaking an Acidwood Tree. Similarly to its adult counterpart, it disguises itself as a geyser. If the player gets too close to one, it will reveal itself and run away until they are far enough from the player. Baby Flak Crabs can be caught with any type of Bug Net, and will rarely drop the Geyser Shell when captured.


Used in


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Baby Flak Crab: "Adolescent flak crabs make no attempt to fight off predators, and simply flee from any threats. Their species only learns to pelt their targets from afar later in life, leaving the adolescents defenseless and dependent on their parents."
  • The Baby Flak Crab along with the pet version are both inspired by a submission for a sulphurous sea design contest that was held on the Calamity art server. The original sprite, made by TheBlackHand#2549, was based on a more garbage wastes-like vision of the sulphurous sea.
