I have seen crawfish do this as well!

Makes sense to me. Keeps those big claws front and center in case they get attacked while fleeing.

I always feel sorry for the lobsters in the tank at grocery stores, I wish I could help them escape : (

Ha- I never knew that. And we have lobster fishermen in the family! I can't wait to throw this little bit of trivia at them and see if they knew this!

Better to watch what's coming at you then to wonder what's coming up from behind! Smart lobsters!
