Costco Is Selling Some Ginormous Lobster Claws That Look Like Something Out Of A Sci-Fi Movie

Alright, so, it is no secret that we are living in strange and interesting times right now.

Aside from the social and political climate of the United States, the actual climate of the world is in question, the doomsday clock is at two minutes to midnight STILL and giant lobster claws are on sale at Costco.

Wait. 

What was that last one?

Whoah whoah whoah whoah whoah whoah whoah whoah.

Where is Costco finding these monster lobsters? 

Here is another similar post:

The photos of the claws are coming from different spots in California.

The thing is, the lobster that Costco sells is native to Maine.

How is that giant lobster not hitting the east coast at all?

Not only that, but you can buy six live lobsters from Costco online for $130.

How exactly do they plan to deliver LIVE lobster that might have claws this big‽‽

We don’t know but we are definitely scared!

Lobsters can live for a very long time (male lobsters, an average of 31 years, female lobsters, an average of 54 years in the wild) and while they are aging they continue to grow.

A lobster would have to be very old to reach this size.  In 2012, fishermen caught a 27-lb lobster off the coast of Maine that was approximately 65 years old.

We wonder if Costco is also selling the other parts of these giant lobsters.
