Often brilliantly colored, these Tiny hermit crab-like creatures are found in and near large collections of treasure, where they piece together their shells from tiny trinkets they find. Seeing them in the area almost certainly means that treasure is nearby. But, because these crabs are drawn to items that are shiny and colorful, unaware adventurers may find wayward trinket crabs absconding with some of their loot. Adventurers who succeed on a DC 12 Perception check notice a trinket crab or two fleeing with 1d4 gold pieces from their pouch or bag.
