This small crab has a glossy slightly translucent white shell that reminds you of a milk bottle. It mindlessly nibbles at its surroundings.
The vinycrab is actually an artificial creation. It behaves as a normal crab, but composes much of its body out of plastics by filtering microparticles of plastic out of the seawater and eating common plastic bags from the trash. They are believed to have been created to clean up the environment, but can pose as a nuisance to grocery stores near the shore as crabs innately want to consume their plastic bag stock. They can be commonly found crawling around the trash for goods. Their plastic bodies are made from both hard and soft plastics, and most creatures find them naturally inedible. In fact, it also provides them with a small amount of chemical resistance as their surface is not very reactive.
They make poor snacks, only having the barest muscle for eating and often toxic as it picks up pollutants from its surroundings. The poluents can discolor the normally white crabs into other colors.
Vinycrabs make for poor combatants. If they don't run, they pinch in hopes to instill panic, then run when they are shaken off.
