Lobster Claw

This is the dominant “crusher” claw from a lobster (family Nephropidae or Homeridae). This claw is full of slow-twitch muscles and used for a powerful, sustained grip. The opposite claw (not shown) is the “pincer claw” which is full of fast-twitch muscles and used for rapid, seizing motions.
