Black liquid in Lobster, what was it?

Michele Cindy | Dec 1, 200307:34 AM     6

The other night I bought 2 2.5 lbs live lobsters at Shop Rite. They steamed them at the store. We ate the claws and legs 1st, when I opened up the tails both had a black liquid running from the body into the tails. It smelled like the tamale. The meat also tasted like the tamale more then tail meat, so we didn't eat it. Any idea what was wrong with these lobsters? I've never seen anything like this in a lobster before. Do I run out and get tested for mercury poisoning!?
