    That is odd!

    Coincidentally, I saw a green anole lizard on Sunday that had a 5th leg growing out from the side of his tail! Tried to get a pic, but he was too fast for me.

    I still bet it would still go well with some hot drawn butter and a bit of garlic.

    It may just be me but I find the warm water spiny lobster far tastier than the cold water Maine lobsters.

    I think the warm water one is better for grilling and the cold water is better for poaching. Most people screw up poaching a lobster though. You have to poach the claws and tail separately as the claws take much longer.

    I used to catch them while diving. Never really cared for eating them. I've always felt like they taste like whatever you put on them.

    Good to know! Most folks up here just drop them in a big pot of boiling water. Eight minutes.

    Do you have time estimates for either? Up here most folks just say "Ahhhh........eight minutes will do it".............

    Several blues and albinos have been trapped this year too.

    My marine biologist wife thinks that the animal was possibly damaged at some point, which caused the additional growth.
