Wordless Wednesday (Linky) - Blue Lobsters



This is the new aqaurium at my hubby's work.

Besides various fish, they also have some lobsters.  Apparently when you make the transfer of the lobsters from saltwater to freshwater (which takes about 20 days), they turn blue in color.

We call this one Big Mama.  She is loaded down with babies hanging under her tail, so they had to move her to a separate tank.  I couldn't believe how many babies she was carrying, literally hundreds.  I tried to get a picture of them, but no go.

I'd never seen a blue lobster before - she's really pretty!

Aren't they all that color before you cook them?

I've never seen a blue lobster before; I didn't know that about the change from saltwater to freshwater. Thanks for sharing at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama.
