Lobsters are strange looking creatures! With long bodies and five pairs of legs - the first pair much larger than the others - and long antennae on their heads, they wouldn't look out of place on a strange planet in a science fiction movie! But you will find them hidden on the sea bed in crevices or burrows, or caught in a fisherman's lobster pot for dinner!
