Geocache Description:

Not an easy park-n-grab.Easier if you know what to look for.

In North America prior to the 20th century, local Lobster was not a popular food. Hard to believe but eating lobster was considered a sign of poverty. Stories abound of Fisherman’s kids trading their Lobster sandwiches at school for Bologna sandwiches.
Improvement in transportation has changed the Lobster’s appeal. Fresh, live Lobster, is now transported around the world and enjoyed by millions of people.
Here are some fun facts about our Atlantic Lobster:
*The largest lobster ever caught is reported to be about 44 pounds and up to 65 years old.
*When placed in boiling water the lobster doesn’t feel pain, it has no brain.
*Contrary to rumor, the lobster doesn’t scream. The sound you hear when steaming lobster is the steam escaping from the shell.
*Lobster has two different claws, one for crushing and one for cutting. They can be left or right clawed.
*The Atlantic Lobster molts (shed it’s shell) in the summer months. The lobster season is staggered to harvest the lobster when their shells are harder.
*Lobsters are normally blue-green in colour and they turn red when cooked. Albino lobsters are occasionally caught with blue or white shells.
