Panulirus ornatus: Everything about this spiny lobster conspires to make it a seafood status symbol. Its porcelain-perfect exoskeleton is overlaid with blue and orange decorations so striking that the word “ornament” appears in its scientific name. It shuns the cooking pot altogether and is served raw, sashimi style, typically at Chinese weddings.
LOBSTER WALK: From Florida Marine Patrol. Here they come just a walkin’ down the beach… Lt. Dave Bingham was on patrol when a “lobster walk” happened in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. The lobster walk is really a neat thing to see. You can see thousands of lobsters walking in the shallows along the shore. Officer Bingham is a scuba diver and thought misplaced lobsters may be walking in the wake of Tropical Storm Isaac.
