How the Lobster Casts Its Shell. The Zoo~Agical gives the pith of an ar­ ticle on this subject published by Mr. W. A. Lloyd in the London U1 Fieldr'm about the following words: "The lobster, feeling the time of exuviation approach, seeks a retreat where it may be safe during the period of soft helplessness, which lasts two or three days after exuviation.

If there is a good bed of sand and shingle (as there should be) six or eight inches thick, the lobster por ceeds to excavate this away behind, and with its anterior limbs pushes it up in front, and makes a kind of defensive earthwork. In this operation it is aided by an occasional motion of its false feet in driving away a current of sand east­ ward, below its tail, the head then being turned inward, toward the hinder part of the little cave thus formed, into which the lobster never allows any other creature to e...
