Lobsters are delicious.
And even lobsters appreciate just how delicious lobsters are.
For the first time, cameras have captured lobsters going cannibal in the wild. The freakish behavior has been witnessed before in captivity (look real close next time you pass that murky tankat the supermarket) but it took a University of Maine graduate student to prove the unspeakable deed happens in the ocean too.
Noah Oppenheim explains in the video below how he set up underwater cameras off the Maine coast to record the fate of a very, very doomed adolescent lobster that he'd tied up.
Other sea life come and go, but eight out of nine times the little lobster is eaten by one of its own. Experts think the extremely high lobster density right now in the northern Atlantic is making these attacks more common.
So get some garlic, warm the clarified butter and grab one of those red-and-white plastic bibs and see it for yourself:
