A real-life kaiju, albeit a rather small one, was captured off the coast of Massachusetts last week in what is surely a sign of bigger monsters to come.
"This claw deformity is a genetic mutation," said Aquarium Manager Aimee Hayden-Roderiques. "Sometimes they have this throughout their life, sometimes this happens during a regeneration from a damaged or lost claw."
Hayden-Roderiques said she has seen claw deformities before, but never a single lobster with six claws.
This is also the first time marine scientist David Libby of the Department of Marine Resources has seen such a creature.
