Four Clawed Mutant Lobster

We (I) here at Zooillogix have a thing for lobsters. It involves Belgium, pasta tongs, and a Dutch boy named Lourens. I’ll leave it at that.

Anyway, this mutant lobster was pulled out of the briny depths near Newport, RI earlier this month. Lobsterman Patrick Marks sometimes releases lobster “when they look at him funny” and so this almost-Pokemon-character was returned to the sea after a day-long publicity tour.

    A fine lobster tail you tell. The extra claws turned out to be a release clause!

    Returned to the sea? Forget about it. Introduce to the pot. Extra butter.

    There’s been a mutant lobster bonanza the last couple years.

    Is someone doing a study to find out if this sort of thing is increasing? We’ve got blue lobsters, fuzzy white lobsters, two-tone lobters and it’s only a matter of time before one comes out with a handlebar mustache and a “Mom” tattoo.

    That’s Clawbster, which evolves into Clawking when it reaches level 32.

    I used to work at the seafood department in a chain supermarket. Someone once asked me “Why do your crabs only have a blob of meat at the ends of two of their legs” I said “Do you mean the claws?”

    To that, they replied “Yeah, whatever they’re called. Why don’t you order crabs with claws at the end of all their legs?”

    I told her those aren’t available this time of year.

    I would think this the result of a “developmental insult” rather than a mutation. To me, mutation implies a change in the genome, which I doubt is the case here. Probably more developmental insults in the sea these days than there used to be.

    select 20% black as the second swatch and remove the border. When you adjust this gradient, start in the middle of the fold shape, hold Shift, and drag out to the bottom right of the fold at a 45 degree angle.
