Attack Lobster on prey
Yikes! Attack lobby!
Yeah lobsters are cool and serve vital ecological functions in a number of marine habitats including coral reefs. A male Caribbean Spiny lobster (Panulirus argus) is distinguished by his single swimmerettes on the abdomen as well as disproportionately large carapace and second pair of walking legs, is protected inside the conservation zone and serves as a megaspawner to replenish populations that provide critical income to local fishers as well as amazing marine life encounters for divers and snorkellers. Help protect local fishing and ecotourim by not purchasing undersized individuals or any lobster during the closed season.
