    I was actually happy to see Leon fight back when you were trying to scoop him with fish net. When you first brought him from the grocery store in a paper box, his eyes were pretty much dead. He didn’t flinch, move, or try to defend himself even when you cut the robber band. It was obvious he had no hope, just quietly waiting for his demise. Now his eyes show so much emotions and vigor. You made him want to live life again. Now he wants to fight and defend himself when he thought you were trying to trap him (you could literally see the anger and betrayal in his eyes he looked so upset 😭 ) he is so so much more than just a menu on a dinner plate. I’m glad you found him.

      Yeah I'm deadly sure he wants to life again for 30 years in a small tank. How wonderful. Now he can turn around, and... Yeah that's pretty much it. But I'm sure he loves his life.

      @Lucaz Yes, but what is the alternative? To be boiled alive and eaten? Life is not perfect and life is not always fair for any creature. Life can be very difficult for those not at the top of the food chain, and life is not always easy for those who are. You could set Leon free in the ocean, but two minutes later he could be attacked and eaten by an octopus.

    This series is absolutely wonderful. I love watching Leon become more comfortable. His color definitely looks better. And it was fun to meet your other pets (love your cats!)
    The music was calming and your narration is such a joy to listen to! I definitely chuckled multiple times. I think this whole journey evokes a sense of childhood wonder and brings back memories of playing as a kid. I'm back to storytime from when I was young, and I'm all for it. Thank you Mr Brandwood!
    And to Kamikoto knives for sponsoring - I'm definitely going to check them out.

    Imagine being Leon, seeing this seemingly impenetrable forcefield trying to abduct you out of your new home and into the sky getting closer and closer while doing your best to fight it with your claws. Then get reintroduced to a familiar atmosphere to your previous home. But slowly realizing that this is not your previous home but an entirely new planet from his perspective. That's already populated with it's own fish and plant life.

    And he’s like β€œok I guess this is better than being cooked and eaten”

    He is doing so much better now than when you brought him home. He couldn't even lift his claws. Looked like a wet rag. Now look at him! Kudos to you for your excellent care and attention to detail with his home.
    Saving one lobster won't change the world. But for that one lobster, his world is forever changed.

    Thank you for inspiring me to adopt a grocery store lobster, I've always had an intense hatred of lobsters as food, but seeing a "food" animal being nursed back to health and becoming a lively and loveable pet. It really makes me appreciate aquarium owners who rescue critters who are surrounded by misinformation and show the world how great they actually are.
    I live in Maine and have never had a positive experience eating lobster but it's such a staple of the culture, and I can finally see the good in these big guys. After doing a lot of research and setting up the perfect tank, I'm going to adopt a Maine lobster from Hannaford.
    (Important spiteful detail) Hannaford is a store that I hold a specific grudge against, it's pretty specific to Maine and we have very lax alcohol laws so almost every shelf in the store has alcohol. I'm going to adopt my lobster with my sober friend, so we can spite the shitty store that we can't go shopping in without having to dodge and weave aisles and aisles of alcohol. They also always have a full tank of lobsters

      @Marx Stirner So, you're okay with lobsters slowly dying in aggregate at the grocery store?
      I worked in one some years ago, I know they don't feed them in those tanks nor do they all get sold off as food before dying. Pending the economic means of the area the store serves, I can say with relative certainty that most don't make it to the steamers.

    when moving a lobster, just grab his back. although lobster pincers can hurt, their strength is vastly exaggerated. they 100% cannot cut your fingers off, they even have a hard time breaking skin, unless they get you just right. your biggest enemy when handling lobsters is hesitation.

      @Daniel R This is misleading and I just researched to see what is true and what isn't. It is true that they are made in China, but from Japanese steel. They are thicker and heavier than Japanese knives as a result. Additionally, the price is intentionally inflated but it's really common to get them for as much as half-off. The consensus is the price tag and focus on the Japanese origin of the brand both seem to be marketing ploys. The price tag makes them seem more valuable and desirable to get people to want to buy them on sale, while the focus on their Japanese methods made from Japanese steel built from a Japanese legacy seems to be a means of separating the knives from the negative connotations of being made in China. The general agreement is that they barely eck by as worth the price at full, but if you can get them half off, that's the ideal (but any deal for them seems worth it). The knives are NOT cheaply made and seem to be great for people who like having something that is both aesthetic and practical. The biggest drawback to them is their price-tag, but from multiple sources I can find, their quality is akin to other high-end knife brands like Shun. You may need a whetstone, however, as some people seem to be reporting the Nakiri knife needing reprofiled, but otherwise the knives seem to maintain their durability and edge for quite a while.
      Basically, what you're saying's not blatantly false, but you're painting a more negative picture than it really should be. They are good high-end knives, but not the best. Though they seem to be good for their effective price. Most people who get them would do so just for the name-brand association though.

      @Magali Comte He explains it in the previous video. Leon was bred and has never seen or lived an ocean. To set him free would be like letting a rat you purchased at PetSmart out in the woods. He would be killed almost immediately and would not have the natural instincts to survive.

    The lobsters at grocery stores are always so listless, barely even moving their antenna; much less walking & cleaning. Leon is so active, curious, & proud of his clean space. They say lobsters are brainless things that don't need enrichment, but my dude here got him a private trainer to strengthen his claws so he could do more things. He explores. He's always doing something. He doesn't have a human brain, but he looks so vibrant & alive, man... You're living my childhood Lobster Rescue dreams, lol!

      @stickyjake7 Rarely, but I do actively try to limit how much I eat specifically due to the conditions of factory farming. When I do eat meat, I try to make sure it's from a brand that is certified humane. But there's a difference still from buying meat from cruel sources and actively torturing an animal yourself, such as disabling its body parts with rubber bands or boiling it alive. You actively argued a perspective of "Why care about being cruel to these animals". That is what I'm taking issue with.
