Scintillating jeweled scuttling crab

A Scintillating Jewelled Scuttling Crab, as seen in the 2005 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy film.

Scintillating Jewelled Scuttling Crabs are Crab-like creatures native to planet Vogsphere. In the film, they are seen to have a bejewelled body, two eye stalks, and crab-like claws.

History Edit

These crabs are one of the creatures which evolved on planet Vogsphere after the Vogons, creatures which are said to be much more aesthetically pleasing than said Vogons as if made by the natural forces of the planet to make up for their earlier blunder. The Vogons do not appreciate the beauty of these crabs and instead enjoy smashing the Scuttling Crabs with large iron mallets in order to cook them and eat their meat.

After discovering interstellar travel the Vogons left their homeworld of Vogsphere and migrated to the Megabrantis cluster, the political hub of the galaxy. However, every year they import twenty-seven thousand Scintillating Jewelled Scuttling Crabs and while away their happy drunken nights by smashing them to bits with iron mallets.
