In the December 2012 issue of TFH, Edward Adam Jackson reviews the types of spiny lobsters and their care requirements. One of the most unique things about one species, Panulirus argus, cannot be seen in an aquarium.
At the beginning of the storm season in the Caribbean, these normally anti-social lobsters line up in the shallows and migrate to calmer waters, their preferred habitat. The video below shows them on their amazing journey, as narrated by David Attenborough from the Trials of Life.
