Monster of the Day: rust monster

Source:  Dungeons and Dragons
Location:  Dungeons mostly
Threat Assessment:  3.  Not a skilled fighter.  It's real danger is its touch rusts metal to dust.  So an encounter with one will disarm most fighters generally in a very hostile environment.
Limitations:  Dumb as a stump.  Arrows work well.
Personal note:  Not sure where this beastie is taxonomically.  It seems to have some crab like features along with reptilian.  I do remember a child's toy in a 1.99 bag of dinosaurs that was the spitting image of one.  Interesting, no?
