"I caught a lobster! That makes me a lobSTAR!" —City Folk

The lobster (イセエビ, Iseebi?) is an uncommon crustacean which can be found in the ocean all day between the months of November and February. It is sold for 2,500 Bells. Its shadow size is about the same size as the sea bass.

Donating to the museum

Like all fish and bugs in the Animal Crossing series series, the lobster can be donated to the Museum by talking to Blathers, the curator. Upon donating, he will tell the player a bit of information about the lobster.

In City Folk

Upon donating to the Museum in City Folk, Blathers will say;

"Lobsters rather remind me of shrimp, though many call them crawfish of the sea. Size varies by species, but some lobsters have been known to grow to a massive 48 inches in length. ...I rather dislike them, actually. Their clicky legs and vile bellies call insects to mind, I'm afraid."

The lobster can be found in the back tank, crawling along the bottom.

Further information

Lobsters are a type of invertebrate and crustacean with species spread all over the world. They have an exoskeleton which protects them from predators, which they molt in order to grow, the downside being that they are vulnerable during molting. Lobsters come in different forms, clawless and clawed but they all have ten legs (the claws on clawed lobsters are adapted to be legs). Lobsters can be known to live up to 100 years of age. The Japanese Spiny Lobster as seen in game is the center of a fishing industry in Japan and other parts of Asia.
