I know it is one of the best tasting sea food, yet every time I see one, I always wonder about the very first person who was so hungry that it decided to eat one of those ... I mean, look at it, who would ever think that the taste of the meat is divine!

Had no idea this kind of lobster got that big! Interesting. A pet?
Familiar with Maine's versions -- preferred the new shells when we lived there.
Grand closeup, Walter!!
