Lobsters Talk With Their Pee

Lobsters have urine release nozzles beneath their eyes (and their bladder is located under their brain!). Their urine carries pheromones which can convey a range of messages, from aggression to readiness to mate. These urine signals travel up to seven body lengths away from the lobster that sent them.
