0003245: Magma crabs drown in magma
After modding magma crabs to actually exist in-game (by adding [LARGE_ROAMING]), I found that they simply die shortly after spawning. A test in Arena mode (after removing [ARENA_RESTRICTED]) shows this to be a result of the magma crabs drowning in the magma.

Magma crabs need [NOBREATHE] if they're going to survive longer than a few seconds.

See 0001499 for the issue which causes the magma crab (and several other creatures) to never spawn.
