So a human (Homo sapiens) ate your lobster (Panulirus argus).
Documented interaction between humans and lobster are common. We present an analysis of high speed video for a carapace crushing interaction between a human and lobster at a restaurant in the Florida Keys. Relative attack and avoidance trajectories suggest that lobsters adopt a ‘play dead’ strategy to avoid predation. This strategy proved suboptimal and likely results in high predation rates.,
