Americans like to assume that Maine lobster is the only lobster worth knowing about. But travel to the Caribbean and you might find there's something else to compare the Northeast's most famous crustacean to.

We went to the British Virgin Islands to get a closer look at one of their most prized products - the spiny lobster. They're often larger and sweeter than their cold-water counterparts and they swap claws for antennas. Take a look at the video to learn the story of one British Virgin Islander who makes a living out of spiny lobster. But be forewarned -- you might be booking a ticket to Tortola faster than you think.
