8lb One-Clawed Lobster Given a New Home! - March 2019

8lb One-Clawed Lobster Given a New Home! - 29th March 2019

Charlie Clark was shocked to catch this one-clawed 8lb lobster out of Eastbourne whilst fishing for plaice!

Charlie said he thought it was onto a ray at first.

Charlie is then pictured taking his catch to Blue Reef Aquarium in Hastings, where he can be viewed in the ray tank!!-Happy Days! 

Charlie says 'For all those wondering why I didn’t throw it back in the sea the hook was stuck in its mouth and it took a bit of force to get it out wanted to make sure a creature of that age survives can always go back in the sea will leave it up to them now' 

FUN FACT What do you call a lobster with one claw? Will that claw grow back? 
A lobster that has lost one claw or has any missing appendage is called a cull. One that has lost two claws is called a bullet or dummie. Lobsters can grow back new claws, legs and antennae!

Thanks for sending Charlie.
