A six-clawed lobster caught off the shore of Hyannis, Massachusetts is famous today because a six-clawed lobster is not something you see very often. As you can tell from the above photo, the lobster sporting six-claws has an “Edward Scissorhands” look to its claws on the one arm.
According to CBS News on Sept. 9, the crew of the Rachel Leah caught the lobster, which was given the name of “Lola” by the crew. It was donated to the Maine State Aquarium in West Boothbay Harbor last week by Captain Peter Brown and lobsterman Richard Figueiredo, of the Rachel Leah.
The lobster, which weighed in at about four-pounds, will feel right at home in her new digs as soon as she’s introduced into the general population of a group of rather odd lobsters. The Aquarium is known for offering rare and strange looking lobsters a good home. This is one of the favorites for visitors.
While many lobster lovers see that “Edward Scissorhands ” like claw and think six times the appetizing delight for dinner, others see a freak of nature, which you might never have the chance to run across again. Once Lola gets acclimated to her new surroundings she will join the other odd-looking lobsters, but for now, she's by herself.
