Q. Are prawns, lobsters, and other shellfish protected by the SPCI?
A. Unfortunately not. These poor creatures fall under the RSPCA's jurisdiction. However we are unsure how much protection these animals can reasonably expect from them, given that the only reference to lobsters on the RSPCA website is their cooking instructions.
Q. If I cut a worm in half will I get two worms?
A. No!! You will most likely get two dead pieces of worm. Although worms can in some cases regrow their tail segments if lost, in no case will the tail segment grow into a new worm. Cruel experiments to confirm this fact SHOULD NOT BE ATTEMPTED.
