June 15th is Lobster Day. Why celebrate Lobster Day? I like to use it as an excuse to sing “Rock Lobster” and annoy my co-workers.
In the spirit of Lobster Day, enjoy these strange lobster facts and photos:
Lobster blood is colorless until exposed to oxygen, then it develops a bluish color.
Male lobsters are called cocks; females are called hens.
Tomalley (lobster liver) is considered to be a delicacy and turns green when cooked.
A lobster’s teeth are in its stomach. The stomach is located a very short distance from the mouth, and the food is chewed by three grinding surfaces that look like human molars, called the gastric mill.
Happy Lobster Day from your friends at the Davenport Public Library!
