These large, caterpillar-like vermin are a common sight to the adventurers of Vana'diel, having adapted to a large number of vastly different climates. Crawlers are found just as commonly in dark caves such as the Maze of Shakhrami as they are in the temperate meadows of Rolanberry Fields, where they feast upon the lush vegetation and Rolanberries. They can be found at home in the arid terrain of Tahrongi Canyon as well as the wet jungles of Elshimo Island. Even the beastmen-created settlement of Castle Oztroja and the Tonberry-populated Temple of Uggalepih are home to these vermin. The species of crawler known as Eruca have even evolved to survive in the volcanic regions of Halvung and Mount Zhayolm.

The main variety of Crawler encountered by adventurers is yellow and black in color. Eruca, with red and black coloring can be found in certain regions on the Aradjiah continent, these Crawlers have special attributes not native to standard Crawlers. They sleep during the night and also regain TP during Firesday. Defoliators, with green and black coloring can only be found in a handfull of areas, including The Boyahda Tree, Aydeewa Subterrane and The Temple of Uggalepih. They share the abilities of standard Crawlers. The only common elemental weakness in the Crawler family is weakness to Dark Magic.
