It is understood that the lobster will use a partial tentacles to rub the underthe eyes of the “knife” to make a sound known as tentacles.

The scientists, who recorded the sound of 24 hedgehog lobsters 328 feet (100 meters) off the french coast, then concluded that the largest lobster of the species (about 14 cm long) could be detected 1.9 miles (3 kilometers) below water by analyzing the sound data from the lowest background noise environment.
