Bubba The Leviathan Lobster
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: Mar. 2, 2005

Crustacean. Largest believed to be found and possible oldest. Weighing in at a whopping twenty-two pounds, Bubba as he was affectionately named by Wholey's fish market that housed him for one week, was pulled from the ocean waters near Nantucket, Massachusetts. Bubba died a day after being transported to the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. His cause of death they believe is due to the fact that his salt-water mixture he was living in, was somewhat off, which resulted in his death. Based on how long it typically takes a lobster to reach eating size, about five to seven years to grow to a pound, some estimated Bubba was about 100 years old. Marine biologists said 30 to 50 years was more likely. But none the less, its possible that Bubba lived through two world wars and Prohibition, as many believe. 
 
Burial:

They should have left you alone, Bubba. Rainbow Bridge holds all creatures big and small, you were a tough guy.
