Did Vanilla crabs always have the little mohawks?

I swear I don't remember these crabs always having the spine of hair along their backs, but now that all of our original crabs have a model update, I'm not so sure! :lol:

That's adorable! At some point they must have either removed those details or maybe it was some sort of visual glitch that was never corrected? :lol:

I believe the hairy bits were originally removed because it caused issues with crab minipets or something.

I never had a pet crab while playing retail. But I tamed one yesterday on my Classic Hunter to learn Claw 1. It was a pygmy crawler or something. Oh man, I did not expect them to be so cutesy. The clattering legs and the little mouth movements. I actually felt bad when I had to abandon the thing.

I can't remember CitizenSnips having one. He was a red one from Durotar I think.

Argh. I had to tame a crab to get the latest rank of Claw for my cat. The damn things are so charming, I feel guilty when I have to abandon them.

I had some in old retail, I don't remember them ever having the spine crest. However, I do love the look. Glad it is in.
