    Lobsters do not have vocal chords and, therefore, cannot scream.

    Some say that the lobster does not feel pain. Others argue that it does.

    Either way, it's kinder to avoid boiling something to death for food.

    no but i still feel sorry for the lobsters. Seriously who want to end their life by being put in a bunch of boiling water! I wouldn't

  • Lobsters don't have vocal cords, so they cannot scream. The "screaming" sound during cooking is caused by steam escaping from one of a lobster's body cavities.

    However, lobsters do suffer when they are boiled alive.

    no..its there shell..when you boil them, all of the air comes out of the shell and it sounds like there screaming. Just like a tea pot..only higher pitched.
