The Spiny Lobster averages a length of about 12 inches, but specimens can get as long as 16 inches. Their coloration is usually a combination of horizontal bands consisting of white, pink, black and brown in a reticulated pattern. But they are famously characterized by their very distinctive markings of azure blue stripes on its body and legs and the bluish green tails. These lobsters have five pair of legs but do not have claws. Their antennae are long and white. They are considered to be semi-aggressive and usually do not tolerate each other, hence living solitary lives.
