Lovely Lobsters?

Hey, did you know that lobsters are cool creatures?

For one thing, they come in a lot of pretty colors. In fact, the New England Aquarium even has a growing collection of rare, brightly colored lobsters.

Better yet, there’s more to the colorful collection than meets the eye. They’ve got insanely great chemistry!

Believe it or not, it turns out that size matters a LOT more to lobsters than it does to humans.

Who knew? Then there’s that “mating for life thing,” right?

Well, before you go swiping right, it turns out that you shouldn’t believe everything you learn on TV. Shockingly, not only is that whole “mating for life” thing not true, lobsters have some pretty weird habits.

Of course, as in many things, eating them is still a matter of personal taste and choice 🙂
