Swarm Crab with a Knifes are very deadly creatures in swarms. When ever a Crab with a Knife is injured or killed, all Crab with a Knifes within 100 feet will immediately swarm on the attacker.
Telepathy Crab with a Knifes possess weak mental powers, which gives them the power of the Swarm effect above. If this ability is somehow blocked, then the Swarm effect is lost. Another benefit of these powers are that they can change basic feelings of others, I. E. happiness, sadness, anger, etc.
