This article is about the current version of DF.
A small, pale arthropod found in underground streams and ponds.

Cave lobsters are a type of aquatic vermin found only in underground bodies of water. Cave lobsters cannot actually be caught by fishing - instead, they must be caught in baited animal traps - upon processing, the cave lobster produces an edible cave lobster and a shell that cannot be used to craft items, unlike other shells.

Some dwarves like cave lobsters for their beauty.
