Large lobster makes waves at Coney Island aquarium

CONEY ISLAND - A special crustacean is making waves at the Coney Island Aquarium. An 18-pound, 75-year-old lobster is the aquarium's newest addition. It was caught off the coast of Canada and shipped to San Francisco, where a seafood company took pity on the extraordinary creature.

Aquarium workers say lobster lovers are flooding in to catch a glimpse of its jumbo-sized claws.

The lobster hasn't been given a name yet, but visitors have suggested a few, including Pinchy and Claude.
