When the gallery is up and working a bit better we're going to have posted a photo of a huge coconut crab that looks like it is something out of the Aliens movie.

Here's a pic of a buddy who had an exceptional day in Miami this weekend.
The bugs weighed 4, 5, & 7.75 lbs!

I guess the Goliaths missed a few.

Thanks!

No, my apartment burned up in November, and I haven't got around to finding a place to live just yet. I am staying on one of our boats for the time being.

PhotoTJ, you would't somehow be affiliated with Aloha Dive would you?

Chris at AD told the publisher about an employee whose place burned down and divers were soliciting eachother to help that guy, and our Publisher heard about it just after he gave away a 55" internal projection Mitsibishi TV in great shape.

Yep, unfortunately, that would be me. I was the manager of the Simi Valley store, and am an instructor. Chris is a good guy.

Wow! what are the chances of finding a bug that carries change, and American currency at that.

Well, he is a California Spiney Lobster. What did you expect him to carry, Kroners?

Only Maine Lobsters have claws! They are in the North East in cold water, but not in the warmer east or south east waters!

Personally, the claws are my favorite part.

I guess that'll give plenty of time for the Maine lobsters to make their way up here ... ;) ;) ;)

I take it the East Coast lobster with claws are not quite quick enough to get you with their claws?

A friend got nailed by a small crab and apparently small crabs can pinch quite hard, but that crabs claw pales in comparison to those lobster claws.

This is a west coast lobster, west coast of the UK :D

The bigger they are the slower they are, their claws slow them down. But strength wise they can break any bone in your hand. Clawless lobsters are known as Rock Lobsters, there's very few left as diver pick them up too easily.

They do have claws as well, just really tiny. Anyway there are tons of them in Florida. The other night on a dive we literally saw hundreds of them!

Our local population of Rock Lobsters is very small, I found one last year. There are a lot of the clawed ones though.

It is all about location. The Maine Lobsters (clawed ones) are found in great numbers in the North Atlantic off the coast of the US. In the tropical waters off the south eastern coast of the US there are great numbers of Spiny Lobster and even Slipper Lobster. I can only tell you where I have seen them personally, I don't know about other parts of the world. I have never seen them in California, but I have only been diving there a few times. I did see a good number of them in Jamaica as well off Negril.
