Best Answer

Different species of lobster are adapted in different ways. Spiny lobsters, for instance, do not have claws like those that are more widely recognized. Instead, they have long rapier-like antennae that can be used to defend themselves. Lobsters are scavengers eating just about anything that they find including carrion.
