ENORMOUS lobster

11 July 2012

A lobster was landed in a creel pot recently – not usually worthy of a blog post but this female was enormous and a spectacular colour. Massive lobsterA face only a mother could loveLook at the colours on the lobsters shellLobster feetMy hand is smaller than her claw

Photos (top to bottom): enormous lobster, a face only a mother could love!, beautiful coloured shell, view from underneath, claw bigger than my hand!
 

We guessed she weighed several kilos and was probably tens of years old. Although she didn’t have any eggs she was put back into the water so she could contribute more young to the population,  Thanks to Angus for keeping her aside to show me,
