Spiny lobster

Palinurus elephas

The Spiny lobster inhabits the shallow seabeds in the vicinity of the coral reef. It hunts at night, and spends the day hidden among stones or coral rocks. In addition to the daily feeding cycle, these animals also have a monthly cycle associated with moonlight. You should not go fishing for spinu lobsters at the Fool moon. Those who count on richly covered tables must go on a “hunt” during the New moon, because at this time the feeding of crawfish is the most intense. Every year, the animal gets rid of old armor so that it can grow. It lives only in clean waters – the presence of crawfish indicates a low degree of environmental pollution. The way these animals move is interesting. During the mating season they go “goose” – one after the other.
