Crabs and lobsters are arthropods. In colloquial speech the term "bug" generally refers to arthropods on land, mostly insects and arachnids. In scientific terms the only true bugs are insects in the order hemiptera, excluding crustaceans, which are not insects.
Lobsters in the wild are generally mottled yellow, green, brown, and almost never red. The reason they turn red during cooking is that other pigmentations are broken down by heat, but the red pigments are not.
Yes. All arthropods have a central nervous system (thick nerve strand which runs through the spine in vertebrates, and a brain in the head).
Exoskeleton or carapace.
The economic importance of lobster is tied to the food service industry, particularly seafood restaurants, for which lobsters are caught and harvested. Hence the economy is supported by concerns which equip suppliers, and that catch, process, or transport lobsters or lobster meat. Without human consumption of lobster they would have a negligible economic impact. Commercial aquaculture operations are somewhat unprofitable owing to the slow growth of the species and the lobster tendency to cannibalism.
Carefully, firstly. You don't want to drop it, that might injure it. Keep your hands away from the pincers, those are very strong, stronger than they look. You can grab on behind the head, as the pincers can't reach backwards, or a bit further back where the legs attack, but not at the tail as the animal may curve back and reach you with its pincers yet. Good luck! ^^
After mating the female lays eggs, which hatch into drifting larval forms, which often become part of drifting plankton. Slowly the larva will develop into a full lobster to stop drifting and settle into its final form and habitat.
Yes, lobsters are invertebrates, belonging to phylum Arthropoda. They have an exoskeleon (external skeleton) and no vertebrae. By contrast, vertebrates like us humans have an internal skeleton including a backbone (vertebral column).
Its internal gills, and armour.
In a limited sense. One definition of analogy is an agreement in details or features, which lobsters and crabs share; but, the words crab and lobster in common usage have distinct and separate meanings; a crab is not a type of lobster nor is a lobster a kind of crab. Probably a matter of opinion but it would seem to stretch credibilty to take license for direct substitution of one for the other in literature… Read More
They are both arthropods and belong to the invertebrate phylum Arthropoda.
If you're talking about the lobster, that's so easy. In case you're wondering, I'm the same person who answered the consumer and Captain Crawfish totem question. Ask me anything on Poptropica. I'll know the answer. So, back to the subject.Go to Big Nate Island and keep going to the right until you're on the right of the lighthouse and see this grumpy guy standing on the dock with some boats right next to him. If… Read More
yes but only if lots of hiding spaces are in the enviorment
Because their uniforms were red. Think of the royal navy in Pirates of the Caribbean. ^^
Yes, most seals are opportinustic and all are predatory and carnivorous; most seem to prefer fish but some specialize in crustaceans. Octopi, squid, cuttlefish, molluscs, bivalves, krill, bottom-dwelling invertebrates like crabs and lobsters, birds, penguins, and even other seals can make up the seal diet.
No. All arthropods, to which the lobster belongs, are invertebrate, literally 'without backbones'. Vertebra = backbone.

The tail of the lobster is often intended to indicate the muscular, chitin-plated articulated segmented abdomen (which ends up with butter and lemon on your dinner plate); which has six segments and bears pleopods (swimmerets). At the terminus of the abdomen are the uropods (on the outside), which together with a telson (center) form the lobster's tail fan, which among other functions assists in locomotion in an escape behavior shared by other decapods called the… Read More
Lobsters can live for more than 100 years. There was one lobster in New York that was estimated to be 140 years old. He was scheduled to be eaten, but they reprieved him and he now lives in the waters off Maine.
In biological circles, the producers (autotrophs) are plants and green algae, which capture energy from sunlight to produce their own food, or in other words capture carbon into the food chain. By contrast, crabs, crayfish, and lobster eat other organisms (both plants and animals) and are thus variously classified as omnivorous, often predatory/carnivorous, or heterotrophic; as such they are considered consumers.
Adult lobsters live from the shoreline to beyond the continental shelf. Lobster eggs and larvae have a planktonic phase usually near the surface, for up to about 10 weeks, are subject to irregularities of ocean currents and can get carried beyond this zones. Lobsters also evidence the phenomenon of long distance migration which they accomplish in single-file formation; in these cases they still remain fairly close to the shore. In winter times the females may… Read More
They typically don't. As the eggs hatch, the juveniles are very very tiny, fragile and translucent, and they drift away to become part of huge swarms of plankton, along with the larvae of many other species of arthropod (like krill!), fish, jellyfish and more. They grow up on their own, molting into bigger and bigger forms, and then ending up as regular lobsters with adult habits.
Whats similar to a crab, lobster, or shrimp is that they all come from the ocean and sea, they all live in water.
lobster in florida is lobster,the times and sizes are the same
I suppose you could call the crayfish the cousin of the lobster. Crayfish certainly look like lobsters. But they are fresh water animals and lobsters are salt water creatures.
Until it dies
Between a few thousand and several tens of thousands, according to the size of the female. The bigger the female is, the more eggs it lays. However, the survival rate is very low. Of 10,000 larvae, approximately only one will become an adult lobster.
Yes, sadly it is only available in China :( I am trying to get him for my collection!
There are several species of clawed lobster, belonging to the family Nephropidae. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Arthropoda Subphylum: Crustacea Class: Malacostraca Order: Decapoda Suborder: Pleocyemata Infraorder: Astacidea Family: Nephropidae For example, the American Lobster: Genus: Homarus Species: H. americanus
Isopods are crustaceans, as are lobsters. Crustaceans are a class in the phylum Arthropoda. Fish, however, are a class in the phylum Chordata, or vertebrates. So, not related to isopods, or lobsters. ^^
The lobster you might be used to seeing with the big claws is the american lobster (Homarus americanus), and lives off the east coast of North America, from below Maine up to Newfoundland. They are actually not red in the wild; the red color is a consequence of non-red pigments breaking down during cooking.
On the American lobster you might be familiar with, that has the large front claws (not the spiny lobster with the giant antenna but tiny claws) there is a larger claw and a smaller one. The bigger one is for crushing prey and has rounded bumps; the smaller is a cutter and has sharp inside edges used for holding and tearing prey.
Lobsters have three pairs of antennae, a large pair and two small pairs. Their sensory functions differ; the largest are for touch and used for navigation. The smaller ones have highly sensitive olfactory functions to detect chemical signals, locate food etc.
Lobsters reproduce by releasing a bunch of eggs, which hatch and float around near the ocean surface. Maybe as many as 20,000 are released at once, estimates are that as few as one in ten thousand survives to maturity. After hatching they float around as plankton, go through a few larval stages and eventually settle to the ocean floor to begin adult life on the bottom. As with other arthropods, in order to grow, they… Read More
A freshwater "relative" of the lobster would be the crayfish.
When they grow, they have to molt their exoskeletons. That is also less accurately described as "shedding their skin".
Echinoderms. No, echinoderms are starfish, sea urchins, and sea cumcumbers. Lobsters are part of the phylum Arthropoda.
three millimeters in an adult.
30 hrs until the lobster's nuts fall off so it can be taken to golden coral.
yes the Lobsters Exoskeleton (Shell) is its skin.
cause they'd be to crabby
Yes red lobster is seafood.
Yes, all arthropods including lobsters are invertebrate, meaning they have no backbone. Instead they implement a strategy of using an outer skeleton (exoskeleton) which obviates the need for vertebrae (but which also can impose other physical limits such as maximum size of the organism).
Blue, in many species. Where we have iron in our blood, lobsters (and other species of arthropod!) have copper, turning it blue.
Colorless. No color. But when they are exposed to oxygen, it develops a blueish color. i say, Lobster blood is weird because it has no color............................................
Actually, lobsters don't have a true nose - if you consider the function of a nose in most land mammals. They do have a rostrum which looks like a nose, basically a point that protrudes out between the eyes, which is mostly for protecting their delicate eyes especially during battle. Their chemical sense - what we might call their sense of smell - is quite acute but is located in their antenna and legs/feet.
The primary defensive feature in lobsters would be their behavior - avoidance of predators; they hide in crags or bury themselves in silt, or otherwise hide. This is especially important after they shed. A mottling or other coloration effects help. When confronted, they can use their claws to attack, or implement a flight reflex called the caridoid escape reaction by compressing their tail (abdomen) to swim backwards. There are also social defence behaviors, where they… Read More
No. An amniotic egg is a bird or reptile egg, with a shell. Only vertebrates can have amniotic eggs. ^^ By extention, mammals also have amniotic eggs, but they're reduced in placental mammals (live birth). Platypi and echidnas still lay amniotic eggs though.
well it has a hard shell all over, and when you eat it there is no spine. It is invertebrate.
You could observe the ventral nerve cord, intestine, sperm duct, openign of sperm duct, ganglion, and rectum
Lobster traps. Among some other regions, there are a lot of them on the Maine coast.
The lobster-like alien character from Futurama is Dr John A Zoidberg, or simply "Zoidberg". Interestingly enough he comes from planet Decapod 10 - and lobsters are decapods (loosely, ten legged).
yes they are
Somewhat. Both are arthropods, but of different classes, the lobster being a crustacean and the roach an insect.
Great question since despite significant differences, lobsters and bugs do share a lot of characteristics, for example, both use the same strategy of having a skeleton on the outside (exoskeleton) which provides both support and protection, both using the same hard protein (chitin), both lay eggs, and so forth. The system used in biology to classify living things - the taxonomy - is a technique used to group in a hierarchy based on physical similarities… Read More
A fisherman's lobster pot traps lobsters by baiting lobsters into entering the trap where it cannot escape. You can learn more information about Lobster Traps online at the Wikipedia website.
Lobster Gram isn't the cheapest dish around, but certain restaurants offer affordable dishes. Typically, these restaurants are local and vary from city to city, which is important to keep in mind.
Yes!They can blink.
No. A lobster and crab is a crustacean. An octopus, squid and cuttlefish are mollusks.
Maybe Maybe not
No it taste like shrimp but WAY better!!
Came from "lopster" which came from old English "loppestre" meaning, spidery creature.
4.99 per pound
They both have an exoskeleton.
One could go lobster fishing in many places worldwide. Different kinds of lobsters are found in different areas around the world. One should determine the type of lobster they desire to fish for then find their locale.
Seals don't open lobster shells. They eat fish.
The lobster is an arthropod, and all arthropods belong to the taxonomic domain of Eukarya. Eukarya covers all organisms in the Kingdom Animalia, as well as the Kingdoms Plantae, Fungi and Protista.
No just from over cooking
No, prawns are just shrimp.
No. Some species of lobster do, but it's generally a once-in-a-lifetime event.
A lobster is not a mollusc - molluscs are slugs and snails and the like.Lobsters are classified in the phylum Arthropoda, along with the other crustaceans, insects, arachnids and centi/millipedes.
Lobsters are crustaceans and are also aquatic. (life in the water)
Yes, octopi are fond of crab and lobster as well as other crustaceans, echinoderms, snails, fish, and such. They shred and consume these with powerful beak-like mouthparts located where their tentacles converge.
Any shape you want it to be
Studies of wild lobsters show that they prefer live prey, such as fish, mollusks, worms and crustaceans, but surgeonfish and lobster don't hang out in the same environments. Lobsters are are bottom feeders found in the cold waters of Alaska and Maine, while surgeonfish are herbivores that prefer warmer coral reefs and feed on algae, you will find them near rocks that get a lot of filtered sunlight.
yes because that means that the meat inside of it is raw
Baby lobsters (larvae) are preyed on by many types of fish. An adult lobsters main predator is humans, but they are also preyed upon by octopi, cod, crab, swordfish, eel; other marine creatures with jaws powerful enough to crack their shell, and apparently also other lobsters.
A bristlecone pine. It has a life span of about 3,000 years and one of the longest life spans of all conifers.
When looking for information on cooking many people automatically go to look at websites but often better information ca be found in cookery books. For something like cooking a lobster then try looking in the books in the library.
Some healthy entree choices at Red Lobster are: Sea Food Cesar salad, Grilled Tilapia, Garden Salad with red wine and the Shrimp cocktail. These are healthy food and also low calories.
To boil lobster tails you will need to have a large enough pot to fit your lobsters completely in. You will then add any type of seasoning you would like. Bring the water to a boil and place your lobsters in for 15 minutes.
Hostesses at restaurants will typically earn minimum wage. Depending on the restaurant and the tip structure, hostesses may receive a percentage of the server's tip.
One of the best ways to find out how to cook lobster tails is to visit with a fish monger. One can also find easy instructions online or in cookbooks which specialize in seafood.
There are a number of different ways that an individual can bake lobster tails but the most popular is to clean them and then baste them with butter and then bake.
The most common ingredients that will appear in all types of lobster tail recipes are lobster tails, lemon juice, paprika, salt and olive oil or butter.
Regardless of whether or not you steam lobster tails, or cook them on the grill, you are guaranteed that your efforts will turn a regular meal into a gourmet affair. As long as you follow the recipe instructions properly - specifically the cooking time and temperature - the integrity of the meat will not be compromised. To ensure that the meat is as tender as possible, be sure to thaw frozen lobster tails for at… Read More
You could learn how to cook lobster a few different ways, you can take classes online, also you can watch TV shows like the Cooking Channel and learn from that as well.
You can find how to cook a live lobster by getting a cookbook that is based on seafood. There are also cooking classes that you could take that you might be able to learn how to do this.
The first step to cooking frozen lobster tails is to thaw them. This can be done by letting the tails thaw in the refrigerator overnight or by thawing under cold water. They can cook them on the grill with some lemon and butter, saute them the same way, or stuff and bake them in the oven; Also, they can be steamed or boiled, but this method is the least desirable since the tails had been… Read More
just have fun eating it
I do, but in the ocean everything almost eats everything else, so the easy answer is not plankton or fish smaller than crabs and lobsters.
I make 10$ per hour, and on average make between 5$-10$ in tips from each server on that night. each night i make around 60$ in tips (weeknights working alone-less serveres on, and week ends splitting with another busser having more servers on) its hard work, but only work around 4.5 hours a night. Overall i make about 24$ per hour.
Molting occurs when and because they need to grow. Crayfish have exoskeletons which means they have a hard, protective shell on the outer layer of their body. They need to grow out of their shells to gradually get bigger.
Insects and lobsters. They're both arthropods. Birds are in a completely different phylum.
They become more vonerable to predators but it allows them to grow.
