The lobster, with its characteristic antennae and
claws, is a crustacean with a body that can reach
up to 50 centimetres in length, covered by a thick prickly shell.
It likes rocky areas and places with marine vegetation, as long as there are plenty of molluscs to feed on.
During the day, lobsters hide in crevices or among algae.
At night-time, they go out in search for food, returning
to their shelter in the morning.
When threatened, the lobster moves quickly by hunching
its back, with the tail wide open, and keeping the legs and antennae facing forward.
It dwells between 70 and 200 meters deep, normally moving
closer to coastal areas during breeding season.
