Spotted Lobster

Mark Ring caught this spotted lobster yesterday.  We rarely get them. Probably 2-3 a year with this type of markings.  Less often than a blue one or albino one.  If anyone wants to come take a peek at it or photograph it I’ll leave it in the tank through the weekend.  Bring the kids down, they love this kind of stuff and I’ll even throw in a demonstration on how you can tell the difference between a male and female lobster.  You might even get to see a lobster boat get unloaded.

You can view this slide show of unusual lobsters that I’ve photographed over many years here at our dock in Gloucester Ma, by clicking this text

Video coming at 2PM

    Does he only have one claw and is it abnormally large?
