Lobsters are crustaceans and come in four types: clawed, spiny, slipper and deep sea. Of the four different types, only clawed and spiny are familiar to most people when they order lobster tail in a restaurant. There are many different types of lobster tails. America, Canada, South Africa, Australia, Brazil and New Zealand are some of the better known lobster harvesting areas, but anywhere there is an ocean you can find lobster.
Lobsters live in both warm and cold water so you can find them on any coast. A lobster can be as big as 45 pounds and 42 inches long, but for best eating, the one to three pound lobsters are preferred.
