The Hyrule landscape in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TOTK) is brimming with resources like the Bright-Eyed Crabs for you to get, but first, you must find them. These crabs only spawn in locations with certain weather conditions. Moreover, they run away if they notice you approaching. While this may seem like a hassle, these crabs are very useful. They are an efficient ingredient in meals to restore Link’s health and stamina. In this guide, you’ll learn where to farm Bright-Eyed Crabs in TOTK.
Where to Find Bright-Eyed Crabs in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TOTK)
You can find the Bright-Eyed Crabs at three locations such as Zora’s Domain, Lanayru Wetlands, and Lanayru Great Spring. These crabs in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom are fond of rain so you can only find them when it rains. Fortunately, it’s always pouring in Zora’s Domain and the areas around it, so you’ll find these crabs in plenty.
Once you find the crabs, do not walk or run towards them. If they notice you, they’ll run away at surprisingly fast speeds. To catch the Bright-Eyed crabs, you must sneak up on them by crouching. When you’re near them, press the prompted button quickly to collect them.
