Lobsters are animals that appear briefly in the DreamWorks Dragons Franchise.
Lobsters, specifically Clawed Lobsters (Family Nephropidae), are 10-legged oblong crustaceans, known for their pincers. Lobster species live in all the world's oceans along the sea floor from the shoreline to the edge of the continental shelf. Typically Lobsters frequent burrows or rock crevices. Their diet consists of plant material, other crustaceans (and occasionally other lobster), various other invertebrates, worms, fish, jellyfish, and scavenging carcasses of various creatures. As with all crustaceans, lobster lack an internal skeleton and instead have an exoskeleton.
|“||The last type of shell is the chitinous shell; crabs, lobsters, and shrimp have a rigid skeleton on the outside of the body that is made of chitin. The chitin protects the delicate tissues and is watertight.||”|

In actuality, lobsters are a major crustacean food source for humans, and are caught world-wide for consumption.
Northern Lobster is another name for the American Lobster found along the Atlantic Coast of North America in cooler temperatures.
When Waldondo del Mundo returned to Huttsgalor, he brought a small lobster with him. He then taught Burple a game called "find the northern lobster", which consisted of hiding the lobster under a bucket and then switching it with other empty buckets. The lobster followed the Rescue Riders around until they left the island.
Lobster are mentioned briefly in the "Wrath of Stormheart" Expansion. They are mentioned as examples of creatures with chitin exoskeletons.
