How Strange That Only Last Friday,

we made a post about lobsters and how big they can grow,

and then here today one who it is known to be 132 years old has been returned back to his home, meet Louie, on Friday June 16, 2017, Peter's Clam Bar at 600 Long Beach Rd, Island Park, New York, USA and the Town of Hempstead celebrated National Lobster Week by freeing a 22-pound lobster named Louie, he was taken by speedboat to his new home near the Atlantic beach reef, said Butch Yamali, owner of Peter’s Clam Bar in Hempstead, “Louie has been here about 20 years. He looks like he’s ready to go,” Yamali said before loading him into a boat docked at Reynolds Channel, 

Butch Yamali, owner of Peter’s Clam Bar, pictured holding Louie, He added, “He’s the largest and oldest of all my lobsters. It’s happy and sad.” last week, a customer offered Yamali $1,000 to chow down on Louie at a Father’s Day dinner, he said, “He was trying to negotiate with me. He said, ‘I want to bring it home for a Father’s Day feast.’ I mean, that would’ve been some impressive feast. But I didn’t want to sell it. It’s like a pet now, I couldn’t sell it,” Yamali said, and how do we know how old Louie is? it is all in the rings.
