"I got a lobster! Lobjective complete." —New Horizons

The lobster is a rare crustacean which can be found in the ocean in New Leaf and New Horizons. Diving is the only way it can be obtained.

Donation to the museum

In New Leaf

The Lobster is now classed as a deep sea creature rather than a fish, meaning that it is no longer caught by using a fishing rod; rather, the player must dive underwater once they have obtained a wet suit. After being donated, it can be found in the large pool in the first room of the Ocean exhibit. The exhibit has this to say about the Lobster:

"Lobsters live in the ocean, have large, powerful claws, and are closely related to crawfish. They are a delicacy, also known by the names "crawfish of the sea" or "homard," their French name. However, unlike crawfish, they are much bigger and can live for more than a hundred years. Lobsters are aggressive and will pinch with their claws if you don't properly bind them while handling."

In New Horizons

Upon donation or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers the curator will say:

"The lobster is rather famous for its two large claws. But did you know that, in fact, it has six claws total? Of course, the four tiny claws aren't as threatening as its large "crusher claw" is. That pincer can put a hundred pounds of pressure on in a pinch! Just a little something to bear in mind when a lobster tries to shake your hand."

Further Information

Main article: Lobster on Wikipedia

Lobsters are invertebrates and can be found all over the world. They have an exoskeleton which protects them from predators, which they molt in order to grow, making them incredibly vulnerable at this point of time. They live in rocky areas under the sea, which also helps them to protect themselves from predators. 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 one hundred years.
