Caption: I'm coyote peterson and i'm about to . enter the pinch zone with the american . lobster here we go . if i asked you to name a single animal . from the great state of maine i have a . pretty big feeling you say the lobster . so today the crew and i will be heading . off the coast of portland maine on the . rolling blue waves of the atlantic ocean . it's a search for one of these marines . wehling crustaceans . well here we are it's beautiful portland. maine and it is a big day for everybody . out there watching it's a big day for me . because it's been almost a year since i . promised that i would be pinched by a . giant lobster so today we're going out . on the lobster boat to look for one of . these creatures now i hear they have a . crusher claw and a ripper claw look what . though a crusher and a ripper so which . one are you going to get pinched by well . both of them because we need to find out . which one does more damage so if you . guys are ready let's go meet our captain . and head out on the water my money's on . the ripper . on this voyage out to sea i will be . working alongside day a true lobstermen . and seasoned captain of the lucky catch . you'll be taking us out to check a . handful of traps . also known as lobster pots in which we . hope to find a market size lobster that . will ultimately be used to pinch my hand . yes you heard me right. coyote peterson is going to enter the . pinch zone with an american lobster . ah he meant the one ah with biting me . the striped el scorpion powerful sting . we all know i have taken many painful . bites and stings but not that many . powerful pensions in fact aside from a . few harmless crayfish and the dungeness. crab this is poised to be my first major . pinch oh oh we back many people have . warned me the lobsters pinch is powerful . enough to break my hand i know this . sounds crazy but i have my doubts the . goal is to put this pinch to the test so . that we can all find out just how . painful it really is but before i can . get pinched first we have to catch a. lobster. here comes our first draft . it'll up a little one all right . now this lobster we're going to measure . to season make the legal side yeah in . order for us to keep it it's got to be . at least three and a quarter inches . across the back up called the carapace . yeah we measure from the back of the eye . to where the back means the tail in this . one a little small you got to go back so . this little guy is going to live to swim . another dad going back alright this is . something is pretty cool the day just . show me see the ripper clown there kind . of zoom in and you see all those little. hairs on the edges it is serrated but . there's also soft hairs and watch this . just any sort of sensitivity to those . and it will snap its claws shut so i'm . feeling that later on when i put my . finger into the ripper cloth it's going . to walk shut alright this one's going . back out into the ocean you ready a . little little crustacean here you go. right yeah believe it or not as a . lobstermen you are first and foremost a . conservationist only lobsters a market . size can be harvested from the ocean and . females who are carrying eggs no matter . what their size are always returned to . the wild what's interesting is they . don't seem to have as much of a reach as . some of the crayfish that i've worked . with before again are like reach behind . yeah as far as the reach and where . they're able to get you with their their . claws i feel more comfortable actually. handling a lobster than i do most . crayfish species. yeah that one's way too small so it's . going to head back out ready . we motor through buoy to booth and pull . trap after trap yet so far we had . returned each and every lobster back . into the ocean then when it seemed that . it all was lost we pulled up the catch . good could be the one . oh that's a pretty good-sized one oh wow . that looks huge . look at the size that slide it down . right yep . oh man that could be the one right there . you see that wow look at the pictures on . that thing man there that one is . definitely big i'm going to take it out . pull up it's cool take this out right . i see it now this one definitely the . biggest we have caught so far today . look at that . that's probably what at least a pound . and a half or two pounds right look at . those pictures oh my gosh dude i think . this is the one if you were to get my . bigger in this day is not the big one . look at that lobster here that is a big . crusher claw net it is strong look at . that ripper cloth i think and we have . found our winning lobster all right . let's get him into the water . whoo all right guys . and we are back in a controlled setting. we're about to get up close with the . american lobster now i have one in this . tank right here people didn't take it . out whoa come here buddy oh yeah there . we go . hello to you too that's a defensive . mechanism right there . whacking with the tail now you maybe . think your self wow that looks a lot . smaller than the lobster you pulled out . of the pot earlier today and as a matter . of fact it is we're going to show you a . little bit about the anatomy of this . crustacean before we actually get into . the pinch now let's start at the tip of . the nose and go all the way down to the . tail the american lobster is the . heaviest and longest living crustacean . in the entire world they can weigh as . much as 40 pounds and people estimate . can live as long as a hundred years now . you may be thinking to yourselves coyote . i thought lobsters were red this . creature is got black spots it's got a . little bit of blue near its joints for . the most part it looks like the bottom . of the ocean that's because lobsters are . only red after they are cooked and good . news for lucy here is to both her and . lonnie the big one that we have just . back here are both going to be released . into the ocean as soon as we are done . filming now just like a crab or crayfish . lobsters do have gills however they can . be out of water for a significant amount . of time you may be . i already did it back in the water and i . will it's good for it to be dipped in . there but a lobster can stay out of the . water for around 2 hours before it . ultimately suffocates so these creatures. are extremely durable now on my left . over here . you have what's called the crusher claw . and on my right what's called the. pincher or the ripper claw now the way . that these lobsters use their claws is . they'll take the crusher and find . something like a mollusk or clam and use . that claw which has incredible power to . crush the shell of its prey then they. use the pincher or the ripper cloth to . pull out the meat and they slowly eat it . you can see i'm going to turn this . lobster like this so there's other . little pinchers up front here these. front legs are also used to help shovel . the food into the mouth which is right . down in there now one of my favorite . parts about the lobster are these . antennae you see that a lobsters have . poor eyesight because they live on the . basin of the ocean these antennae are . sensory organs and they shape out like . this. like a why can you see that and they use . the to detect movement and chemicals in . the environment this helps them find . prey it helps them communicate with . other lobsters and it helps them to . navigate beneath the ocean food you know . what this lobster is doing right now . it's actually peeing out of its face . what yeah that's probably one thing that . most people did not realize about . lobsters is that their urinary glands . are actually on the side of the face and . they can shoot streams of urine up to 6 . feet underwater and that helps them . communicate with other lobsters i see . that you were just trying to pee on me . i'm peed on and pooped on by almost . everything that i work with now you see . there are some bubbles coming out of the . front of lobster right so what the . lobsters actually doing is aerating its . gills by blowing bubbles let's talk . about the movement of a lobster this . body design is very similar to an insect . and technically lobsters are arthropods . so they're related to bugs and their . body structure is very similar to many . insect species including this hard outer. exoskeleton now when a lobster is . underwater they move forward slowly . using their pincers and their legs to . propel themselves forward. they look for food they catch it they . crush it they tear it apart and they eat . it but if something comes into the . environment that is a potential predator . what they will do is quickly shoot . themselves backwards using soon as well . flipper things down here these are . called swimmer s and then the tail is . technically called to telson that's this . big flipper on the back here looks like . a widow p it does right and they're able . this is all muscle right here right and . what they'll do is will shoot themselves . backwards usually into a crevasse or . into a hole and then they skate the . potential predator awesome so i have a . quick question how do these things grow . i mean you set up to 40 pounds how does . that work. yes lobsters at this size this lobster . is probably around 7 years old and they . are very very very slow growers so for a . lobster to reach 40 pounds let's say so. that's considered enamel for a lobster . to reach 40 pounds it would probably be . somewhere between 70 and 100 years of . age crazy is that well they can live a . hundred years hundred years or so they . think nobody really knows for sure . exactly how long but just like turtles . and tortoises that's what scientists . think close to a hundred years well i . think at this juncture we're going to . put lucy back into this tank of water if . you guys are ready i think it's time to . get lonnie out and see just how powerful . both the crusher and the ripper
