Trivia

Bluelobster1

Blue lobsters like this one are what Chrushstation's blue body is derived from

.
  • The blue lobster design of Crushtation is derived from the fact that blue lobsters do in fact exist in real life. It may also be derived from the fact that lobsters, unlike most organisms, and like snails and spiders, have blue blood, not red blood. This is due to the presence of hemocyanin which contains copper.
