A lobster has been saved by a restaurant-goer who couldn’t bear the idea of it ending up in the pot. The 1kg lobster was in a tank at a West Sussex restaurant. However rather than ordering it from the menu, Anna-Marie Colombotti, a vegetarian, took McQueen home and contacted Blue Reef Aquarium.
'Claude' the giant crab is one of three rescued from the pot in Australia after being spotted by a member of staff from Weymouth Sea Life Park. The company 'shelled out' £3,000 each, including shipment, for them. Tasmanian king crabs are a delicacy in Australia. He goes on display tomorrow.
