It is almost time for my annual vacation in Maine, where one of the highlights is eating local lobster. None of them look like this one though.
I realize now I should have put something on the display case at the Canadian Museum of Nature so you could get a grasp of the size of this one. In the picture it just looks like a lobster.
It is only when so see it up close that you appreciate the size. The lobsters I eat are usually a little more than a pound. This one was at least 10 times that – I have never seen one so big.
Estimates are it was 50-years-old when caught. I wonder if it was just as tasty as a young lobster, but I have no idea who to ask
