"... feed and clean out a Fire Crab without sustaining serious burns"
-- Hagrid's Care of Magical Creatures Exam (OP31)

Fire Crab

The Fire Crab (or fire-crab)is a magical creature which looks like a tortoise with a jeweled shell. The Fire Crab can shoot fire out of its rear end. It is constantly in danger of being killed for its shell, which unscrupulous wizards will use as cauldrons.  The fire crab is native to Fiji, where there is a coastal reserve set aside for its protection (FB).

Fifth years, for their Care of Magical Creatures O.W.L., had to demonstrate how to feed and clean out a fire crab without sustaining serious burns (OP31).

Hagrid bred the Blast-Ended Skrewts by crossing Manticores and Fire Crabs (GF13).
