Crazy Claw

freaky lobster claw

Every fourth of July we head up to my parents' house in Maine to visit and swim and eat too much food including lobster, which we get from Fisherman's Catch, the famous A-frame on Route 302 in my home town. Recently my mom started ordering the lobster steamed so we don't have to cook it ourselves and they always do a fabulous job; all we have to do is melt a little butter and start cracking. This year my mom pulled a crazy claw out of the bag. Any marine biologists out there? Can lobsters have polydactyly?


  1. If people can have Lobster Claw Syndrome, why not lobsters having People Hand Syndrome (though it looks more like chicken feet syndrome...)?
