CBS News cites molting information from UMaine Lobster Institute

In an article about a rare orange lobster with a missing claw found in Casco Bay and housed at the University of New England, CBS News cited an online resource with information about molting from the University of Maine Lobster Institute. According to the Lobster Institute, molting is a growth process that involves lobsters struggling“out of their old shells while simultaneously absorbing water, which expands their body size.” The lobster housed at UNE will likely grow its claw back during the molting process, according to CBS.
