So, without further ado, let’s find out more about obtaining Wild Hearts small kemono shell skin!
How to get small kemono shell skin in Wild Hearts
Small kemono shell skin can be quite obscure in the initial game. You might be unaware of its existence until you need it to make Tier 3 and Tier 4 armor. Fortunately, it is a reliable item to farm since it always drops from the same creature and location without fail.
You can get the item by defeating a crab-like beast called the Grassghoul Decapod. This is available in Chapter 3’s Spirit Isle or Chapter 4’s Natsukodachi Isle. The two locations are the same, but in Chapter 4, location names change due to the story.
Although you may encounter small crabs during Chapter 2, these early game versions of the creature will only drop Small Kemono Carapace. Kemonos from Chapter 3 onward are invasive. This means that they drop high-tier materials. These can help players upgrade late-game armor sets and weapons.
To find the Grassghoul Decapods, follow the main road out of your coastal camp until you reach the eastern portion of the map. Here, there are two clusters of Grassghoul Decapods waiting to be hunted.
After farming the creatures, bring up your map, fast-travel back to Minato, and then fast-travel back to the Spirit Isle. This will cause the Grassghoul Decapod to respawn. You can repeat this step and farm as much shell skin as you need.
