This very peculiar egg is nestled inside of an equally odd shell.

If one were to follow a cibeus crab around all day, they might come to the conclusion that they are greedy companions. These crabs are constantly searching for food, although they need very little to survive. When they come across a berry or seed, they tuck it away inside of their peculiar shells instead of eating it. What is not usually seen, however, is when the cibeus crabs scuttle away into the forest at night. During this time, they find animals in need, usually young creatures who have been orphaned, and offer them a meal. Because cibeus crabs are not particularly large or fast, it is quite the task for them to feed larger creatures. They are always on the lookout for edibles, and they continue their work even once night has fallen. It's not common to see more than one cibeus crab at a time. They usually keep to themselves, but occasionally a group of them will move off into the forest at once. This signals to magi that there is a creature in need – perhaps unable to move. The crabs work together in these instances, to insure the hurt animal has enough food to survive. When this occurs, several magi will excuse themselves from their activities and follow the crabs, to offer their aid. The injured animal is usually healed, though there have been instances when there were other problems. Sometimes moose have their antlers tangled together, or a young fox has its leg trapped by a boulder. Regardless of the issue, the crabs always lead magi directly there, albeit slowly, and the matter is resolved.
