Catching Lobsters With Your Bare Hands Looks Hilariously Impossible

Catching lobsters with your bare hands looks hilariously impossible

Because my only experiences with live lobsters are when they're on display in tanks at restaurants or used for poses in photographs, I never knew how insanely quick they can be. And because I didn't know they had cat-like reflexes, I never knew how hilarious it is to watch people fail at catching them. Now I know.

It's so great. I love it when animals outsmart our bumbly bodies. But of course we then ruin it by using tools to overfish them.

And here's a video of a successful catch. Pro tip: use a net.
