Alicia's Aquarium Journal - April 20

Our aquarium has sea creatures that are crustaceans like the lobster. Most of what people know about lobsters has to do with cooking them. Here are some other facts about lobsters.
*Lobsters are not red in nature. They can be green, yellow, or even bright blue!
*Lobsters can swim forward and backward.
*They have very poor eyesight.
*Lobsters have very tiny brains.
*Lobsters have a good sense of smell and taste.
*Lobsters usually feed on bottom dwellers like clams, snails, and crabs.
*When scared lobsters scoot away in reverse by rapidly curling and uncurling their tails.
*Lobsters can live for as long as 100 years!


  1. WOW, 100 years! Lovely work Joan!

  2. Sheila, I've seen some really huge ones that were pretty old. Thanks.
