Look! There in the ocean! It’s a rock! No, it’s a lobster! Holy barnacles, Batman, it’s a…wait, it’s a rock lobster? It’s a rock lobster!
Mother Nature can get down with some freaky stuff (just look at the platypus), and the rock lobster is no exception. Lame B-52 and Batman references aside, did you know that lobsters are sometimes called the ‘cockroaches of the sea’? This isn’t because they are related, though. One is a grody insect, the other is related (however distantly) to shrimp, crabs and crayfish.
The unflattering nickname comes from the fact that lobsters tend to be scavengers, feeding on whatever they can find, though this tends to be a last resort method of stuffing their faces. Usually their diet is omniverous, meaning they’ll eat plants, fish, mollusks, even other crustaceans. Invariably, this sometimes mean they’ll end up eating things that other animals would never touch. More to the point, lobsters, like roaches, are arthropods, meaning their skeleton (the thing that keeps most animals upright and not flopping around like an ungainly sack of flesh) is on the outside of their bodies, in the form of tough armor that they have to molt every year as they grow in size.
One unique thing about the rock lobster is that he doesn’t have claws, unlike other varieties. But even if he did, Sunny and Co. has made sure that this yellow and orange-speckled tropical crustacean is both safe and fun in a way that the real thing probably isn’t (do you cuddle with your dinner?). A full 18 inches long, Sunny’s lobster is realistic too and sure to delight any lover of the fantastic life that lingers just beneath the waves.
