Junior scientist Bella explains the lifestyle of the most famous aquatic arthropod, the lobster, and dissects a specimen to explore the anatomy of these clawed crustaceans. Lobsters have a tough exoskeleton, or carapace, which will require strong scissors to pierce. Once below the protective exterior, you will find everything from digestive glands and feathery gills to the tail's main artery and intestine (hindgut).
