Lobsters can actually live up to a couple days out of the water, as long as they're in a cool place.
The lobster you see at the end on the deck was not sold. I was going to give it to my mom, but she didn't want it. I then decided to find a home for it instead. He now lives in a tank at BadFish Clothing/Orca Aquatics in San Pedro. Not much leg room in there, but the lobster probably prefers the tank to the pot.
What a lucky lobster!
