Lobsters are a striking deep blue in colour, with bright red ‘whip-like’ structures (antennules) sprouting from the head. These antennules are used by the lobster to ‘feel’ its way around the environment, especially at night. One of the claws is distinctively larger than the other, especially in the older adults. Common Lobsters like to have a deep, dark crevice in which they hide when not foraging for food. Unfortunately they are no longer as common as the name suggests, mostly due to over-fishing.
