Millions of Noses (Part 1 of 2)

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, a lobster shows off its ability to smell and taste.

The lobster, with its external shell, is classified as a crustacean and is considered by evolutionists to be among the earlier evolved creatures. But recent study of the habits and abilities of lobsters are showing that these creatures are unexpectedly complex; their abilities are equal to the supposedly more-evolved creatures.

The lobster's sense of smell and taste is up to a million times more sensitive than ours. Scents are picked up by hair‑like tufts on its appendages. When eating, the lobster carefully samples the scent of each item it eats. The lobster never seems to get bored with a long, leisurely sniff of each morsel.

Though many of us love the taste of lobster, when it comes to taste, the lobster is far superior than man – not exactly what evolutionists like to hear!
