FIELD FACTS

Scottish Field - - EAST LOTHIAN -

A freshly laid lob­ster egg is the size of the head of a pin. A lob­ster’s brain is in its throat, it breathes and lis­tens with its legs and tastes with its feet. The av­er­age life­span of a wild lob­ster is 50 years, al­though it is thought that they could sur­vive to be 100 years old. Lob­sters are found in all of the world’s oceans. Deep sea lob­sters are com­pletely blind. Some Amer­i­can lob­sters grow to more than 3ft long and weigh more than 40 lbs. The col­lec­tive name for a group of lob­sters is a school.
