Tag Archives: Largest lobster

Weekly Photo Challenge: BIG


This is the biggest lobster sculpture in the world! It is 35 feet long, weighs 90 tonnes, and over 6 feet high. It is located in Shediac, a little town with a population of just over 6,000 in New Brunswick, Canada. The lobster has made this town world famous and it is known as the Lobster Capital of the World. This part of Canada is famous not only for its live lobsters and lobster meals, but also for this gigantic sculpture.

For a better perspective, this is an angle of the lobster claw. Well, this is the biggest lobster claw in the world no doubt.


This lobster came to mind immediately when I read about this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge. Going through my photo album to locate the photos brought back fond memories of our family road trip to the Maritime Provinces on the east coast of Canada, where we toured Nova Scotia (including the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island), Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick.
