manakostnad: CMC: 6 Korttyp: Creature -- Crab Turtle Crocodile Nuvarande oracletext: Defender 6(G/U)(G/U): Adapt 3. (If this creature has no +1/+1 counters on it, put three +1/+1 counters on it.) As long as Scuttlegator has a +1/+1 counter on it, it can attack as though it didn't have defender.
You can always activate an ability that will cause a creature to adapt. As that ability resolves, if the creature has a +1/+1 counter on it for any reason, you simply won't put any +1/+1 counters on it.
If a creature somehow loses all of its +1/+1 counters, it can adapt again and get more +1/+1 counters.
