Tree Lobsters Found Clinging to Rock in Pacific Ocean! (That’s Tree, not Three)

In what feels like the beginning of a sci-fi/horror film, large tree lobsters thought to be extinct have been found thriving on a giant rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Scientists are thrilled with the discovery and said the tree lobsters are tasty with drawn butter.

    how many tree lobsters do you think you could take out before the swarm overtakes you?

       @SeanyNoNameI’m gonna go with tens of thousands.  I have a decent right cross, but I think the guts become an issue once you have thousands of them splattered around you.  If I was wearing golf shoes maybe I can go longer.

    It is always great to discover a new species to dominate and eventually wipe of the face of the earth.
