‘Huge’ Atlantic lobster washed up in Vancouver likely set free by animal lovers
Jan. 6, 2016
It’s certainly not a typical sight on Vancouver beaches, or anywhere on the West Coast, in fact: the carcass of a large lobster, native to the Atlantic Ocean, with claws almost as big as a man’s size 11 shoe.
And before you break out the garlic butter, it doesn’t appear to be a human meal thrown overboard: cooked lobster turns bright red, and the huge claws — which hold tasty meat — were left intact.
So how did this alien arrive on the West Coast? Biologists say it’s so big, it could have been cruising the Pacific for some time.
