WEST BOOTHBAY — Maine State Aquarium Manager Aimee Hayden-Roderiques reported Sept. 3 that this four-pound lobster, with its "five-claw" crusher claw, is on its way to the aquarium.

She said it is being shipped to West Boothbay Harbor from Hyannis, Mass., this week, courtesy of Richard Figueiredo and Captain Peter Brown of the F/V Rachel Leah, one of TV's "Lobster Wars" vessels.

The lobster is due to arrive today, Sept. 5, and after a few days in a holding tank, it will be put on display in the aquarium.
