Crustafish are armored fishlike crusteceans, equipped with inner skeleton in most of their body,
though the limbs and other more fragile parts has an exoskeleton. If that was not enough the
body is covered in armored plates, which is why naurunans are equipped with a powerful beak designed
to crush/puncture the shells/armors of these crustafish.

Crustafish are a very succesful group, mostly because of their sturdiness of course,
but also many of them has poison "fangs" making them an unpleasent encounter for most predators
except for the naurunans. Naurunans graspers has a thick rubberlike skin, hard to penetrate but also
their graspers are great for handling these crustafish keeping their fangs away from the mouth/face.
Though in a modern naurunan world, poisonous fangs aren't a major concern, cause those are removed before
being packed and sold at supermarkets.

Here is a blueshelled crustafish. A very common crustafish in the seas as well as in the
stomachs of naurunans
