Big Lobster Gets To Chill In Aquarium


Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer.

A lobster who's lived to be perhaps 50 years old gets to live a little longer. The creature is about three feet long, weighs in at just under 10 pounds. He was taking a stroll in shallow water off the Sussex coast when he was caught. Now he goes to an aquarium in southern England. Although the critter might've made a mighty big bowl of chowder, he was spared because of his size. And he may get bigger. Lobsters can live 80 years.
