Lobster Behavior

Lobsters are solitary creatures. They are carnivore animals and eat crabs, sea stars, clams, snails, sea urchins, and other lobsters as well. The lobster relies on its antennae to locate food. Most lobsters are nocturnal; they usually hunt for food at night. They are also very territorial animals and can be very aggressive with other lobsters. The lobster has poor eyesight, despite its compound eyes; but has a fantastic sense of smell. Lobsters can regenerate legs, claws, and antennae. They can amputate their own claws and legs in order to escape danger. These animals use complicated signals to establish social relationships. Their main predators include fish, octopi, lobsters, and people.
