A lobster in the U.K. didn’t get the death penalty, but he did get 30 years to life. A 3-foot-long lobster was caught by an angler fishing for sole off the British coast in West Sussex. The lobster is believed to be around 50 years old and is one is of the biggest and oldest lobsters ever caught in Britain.
He was “rescued” from the garlic butter and sent to live the rest of his potentially 80-year lifespan in captivity at the Blue Reef Aquarium in Portsmouth, England. Somehow, I don’t think that he’s happy about the move.
Did we learn nothing at all from Sebastian of Little Mermaid fame? “Darling, it’s better down where it’s wetter, under the sea.”
