Lobsters Have X-Ray Eyes!

Lobsters can see through your clothes? Not really. But lobsters do have special eyes that enable them to see in low light and murky waters 300 feet below the ocean surface. 

A lobster’s eye works on a principle of reflection rather than that of refraction like humans. The reflection is made possible by thousands of squares located in the lobster’s eyes, which are near the base of the antennae. These squares are the lobster’s optics. These well-arranged squares are in fact the ends of tiny square tubes that give the lobster a kind of “x-ray” vision.  The sides of each one of these square tubes are like mirrors that reflect the incoming light. They are composed of entirely of straight walls and right angles, as opposed to the human eye’s curved rods and cones.   This give the lobster an amazing 180° field of view.

xray 300x178 Lobsters Have X Ray Eyes!A lobster’s eye reflects the light beams, rather than by bending it through lenses found in human eyes. This reflected light sends all of the beams reflected by a particular object (like potential prey on the ocean floor) to the same focal point. Each eye, set on a movable stalk, has up to 10,000 facets that operate like many tiny eyes. The lobster probably doesn’t see images, but its eyes can detect motion in dim light. In bright light, a lobster is probably blind. The long antennae are used to feel the area around a lobster. The four small antennae on the front of their heads are used to “smell”  their food or chemicals in the water. The unique design of the lobster eye has been intensely studied to help researches develop X-ray scanners.

Lobster Tails for Any Season

One of the most popular fresh seafood items on our online lobster store are Lobster Tails. And we ship a ton of lobster tails all year long to just about every part of the USA. Lobster lovers the world over will tell you the lobster tail is the biggest, meatiest part of the lobster. There are many different varieties of lobster tails depending on the species of lobster.

LOBSTER15r 336x280 300x250 Lobster Tails for Any SeasonMaine Lobster Tails
At Lobster Anywhere we only sell and ship Maine and Canadian lobster tails from the cold-waters of the North Atlantic ocean. Full of sweet, tender lobster meat, cold-water Maine lobster tails are the most coveted tails in the world. Cold water lobster is prized above all other species for its sweet, briny richness. Our tails are culled from only hard-shell lobsters–so you know you are getting your money’s worth. It is not enough to start with quality hard-shell lobsters, it also matters how the tails are processed. No additives are used, our lobster tails are first blast frozen then double glazed to lock in the lobster’s natural texture and sweet flavor. You’ll pay more for the Maine lobster tails, but you’ll see and taste the difference.

Rock Lobster Tails
Be on the lookout for imposters. Warm water tails will always be cheaper. They lack the quailty and superior taste of frozen lobster tails from Maine. You’ll find the warm-water tails at chain stores and the big catalog steak companies. Those big cruise lines also offer warm-water tails to their passengers to save money. Our customers tell us the tails  taste dried out  or rubbery. Spiny lobsters, also known as rock lobsters, are easily distinguished from Maine lobsters because it has no claws, has short spines along the length of the tail and body; and are marked by bright spots on its tail.  Spiny Lobsters that come from the southern waters and the western Atlantic, from Brazil, Belize, Columbia, Nicaragua and Honduras, are generally known as warm water lobsters. Spiny Lobster Tails are in fact the biggest food export of the Bahams! Spiny lobster tails caught off the coasts of South Africa, New Zealand and Australia are marketed as cold water lobster tails.
