Do lobsters suffer when boiled in a pot?


It is not that the lobster simply suffers: the lobster literally implodes on itself.

Once immersed in the boiling water, in fact, its organs are completely disintegrated by the heat of the scorching water, but their exoskeleton does not give way; it continues to hold on because of its solidity, which only prolongs the poor creature’s abnormal suffering.

Their brains are conscious enough to allow them to suffer, but since they do not have vocal cords, they do not emit any kind of lament. The dull sound (resembling a cry) heard at the time of cooking is simply a breath emitted from the pores of the exoskeleton as the organs boil.

One of the most hallucinatory deaths a living being can go through on this planet.
