Lobster Training at the New England Aquarium

If you thought training fish was impossible, you'll really be amazed by this - folks at the New England Aquarium are training lobsters as described on their blog!

In this video, they are training a lobster to roll over on its back using food reinforcement. Who would have thought that even lobsters can be trained!

If you think that's cool you should see what they're doing with the lobsters now!

I remember having arguments with people, back when I was a teen, over whether "lobsters had a brain." I think this proves they do. It may be small and rudimentary, but if they can be trained to do something, they must have one.
