Those little bands they put on lobster claws when they’re in a pre-eating holding tank? They aren’t to protect the fingers of whoever might be retrieving them.
An opportunist, a lobster will also eat another lobster if given the chance. Captive lobsters become especially cannibalistic, which is why they must be banded in a lobster pound or separated in individual compartments in a lobster hatchery. – Gulf Of Maine Research Institute
