In New Leaf

In New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this creature.

"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."

Further Information

Main article: Lobster on Wikipedia

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 have been known to live up to 100 years of age.
