|“||The Ziggurab's stone shell evolved to protect its sweet, squashy insides. Telescoping shut when startled or sleeping; this creature is as tough as a fortress.||”|
|“||Despite its solidity, the Ziggurab is agile and energetic. Using the resonance of air pockets and specially evolved appendages, it produces a huge array of rhythmic sounds and effects.||”|
|“||This Ziggurab returned from the Prism Gate forever changed! While its overall crustacean appearance has been preserved, it has been separated at the molecular level into two louse-like beings trying to pulverize a rock - extraordinary!||”|
The Ziggurab seems to resemble a cobalt crab with the top being cobalt with a few cracks, and the bottom is mostly a crab body, and it has also one eye. It has two tower layers, one fitting the eye and one that fits its mouth and the rest of its body,which it has four legs.
As an adult, it gains an extra tower layer, which also adds in another pair of claws. The original layers rearrange their pair of claws so that the pair of claws are on the side of the top tower layer. The two lower layers are yellow fading to orange and red.
Prismatic Ziggurabs change into 2 creatures, one of them being upside-down, with a rock in-between them.
Red: Red Prismatic Ziggurab has black eyes and two different sized crab-like slugs, with blue limbs.
Orange: Orange Prismatic Ziggurab has two orange slugs with three orange eyes with green irises, long curly noses and green limbs.
Yellow: Yellow Prismatic Ziggurab has white eyes with red pupils that look similar to Periscorp. It has two yellow slugs and red limbs.
Green: Green Prismatic Ziggurab has two green slugs with large white eyes with purple slit pupils. The slugs have mouths above and below their eyes with purple claws.
Blue: Blue Prismatic Ziggurab has two blue slugs that randomly stick out their tongue, with the bottom one having four white eyes with mismatched yellow irises and the top one having two eyes with yellow irises. It has a mouth with fangs with yellow limbs.
Purple: Purple Prismatic Ziggurab has two slugs that randomly open their mouths, with big white eyes with orange irises. The lower slug's irises are small while the upper slug's irises are larger. It has orange limbs.
Instrument: Synthesized drum kit
The Ziggurab's song utilizes a wide array of various electronic drum beats ranging from synthesizer presets to sampled audio. The upper layers of its body produce an electronic bass drum, while its claws produce an electronic snare drum. Its claws are also used to make a hi-hat sound, though as an adult, the upper claws fulfill this role.
A Ziggurab can be bred with a combination of Cold, Earth, and Fire. Possible combinations include:
During limited time events when Prism Gate is open and Ziggurab is available for transformation on Outer Islands, an adult Ziggurab can be transformed into one of six different colored variants.
Ziggurab can be teleported to Cloud Island when fed to Level 15 for a rewarding of 5 diamonds. Ziggurab can also be teleported to Party Island when fed to Level 5. Teleport time for Ziggurab is 20 hours for Cloud island and 5 minutes for Party Island.
Its name is a portmanteau on Ziggurat (massive temples from the times of ancient Mesopotamia) and crab.
Festival of Yay
For Festival of Yay, the Ziggurab "dresses" to look like a stack of gift-wrapped cylindrical packages.
- The adult Ziggurab appears to be lighter in color in an update.
- The Ziggurab had many designs before settling on its current baby and adult designs. Link.
- In the code, Ziggurab is called "Crabstack".
- Like T-Rox in the original game, Ziggurab has an 8 hour breeding time instead of the 12 hour for triple elements. Again, like that T-Rox, it is the first triple element that is available.
- The Ziggurab is very hard to hear on Cloud Island, as it plays quietly, and is drowned out by a similar-sounding Shellbeat. This is also true for Drummidary.
- The Continent is the only place where Ziggurab doesn’t jump or use its feet at all.
- Ziggurab is the only monster on Party Island to play for the entire song.
