​Sand Crabs are aggressive monsters that look like harmless sandy rocks while disguised, but attack when walked by. They are found along the southern coast in Great Kourend's Hosidius House. The dwarf multicannon cannot be used against sand crabs.

Sand crabs become unaggressive if the player has not left the surrounding area in 10 minutes. To make the crabs aggressive again, exit the surrounding area (run near the Player Owned House portal to the North) and enter again. As they are "dormant" (and cannot be seen on the minimap) until "awoken" by a passing player, sand crabs cannot be attacked until they are made aggressive once more.

They hit fairly low, but players with low Defence should bring food. Sand crabs are excellent for training at all combat levels, due to their low Defence and high Hitpoints, which makes them easy to kill. Sand crabs have 10 more hitpoints than rock crabs, which makes them a better choice for training.

Sand crabs are especially useful for training with very little attention need. Leaving your character in a square adjacent to two or more sand crabs provides substantial experience rates depending on the player's stats and equipment. Sand crabs will lose their aggression after ten minutes.

The new larger sand crab counterpart, King Sand Crabs were released with the new Catacombs batch of updates under Great Kourend.
