Having lived in Boston for the past 10 years I can safely say that is an atlantic (or maine) lobster.

I saw it too... with Kalatin... My first reaction after having it pointed out was "And?" seeing that where I used to dive on Cape Ann is lousy with bugs. Makes me want to release some dungeness into Boston harbor... you know.. for science.

We tried to lure it out with melted butter but it gave us the claw.

We left him alone - he looked comfy (but delicious).

Looks like it to me. My guess is someone "let it go." Catch it and eat it.
