Do You Know Lobster?

Once inside a trap lobsters can never get out.

False – Lobsters Often Escape

Lobsters will often get out of traps - that is part of the design. Traps are built to allow undersize lobster to exit easily. Plus an escape hatch is made of biodegradable twine in case the trap is lost at sea. Adult lobsters will also escape traps at times; it is just more difficult.
