The American lobster (Homarus americanus) finds homes in rock piles or digs holes in muddy places. Its claws, used for catching and crushing prey can be regenerated if lost, as in the case here. Lobsters come in a variety of colors, including mottled reddish brown, white and blue. (photo: Dann Blackwood and Page Valentine, USGS)
