50 Lobster Quotes About the Claw-Some Critters

Learn about these fascinating crusty critters with our fun lobster quotes!

Lobsters are a type of sea crustaceans that are bottom-dwelling, and most of them are nocturnal.

Their food source is scavenging dead animals and eating small mollusks, fish, and even seaweed.

Lobsters have a rigid, segmented body with five pairs of legs, with the first three pairs of legs containing claws.

Lobsters mate by the male providing the sperm in the spring and the female laying 3,000 or more eggs in the summer.

In the wild, lobsters can live up to about 50 years of age, and research has shown that lobsters do not slow down or lose fertility with age.
