Abstract
Which nonhuman animals experience conscious pain? Common sense suggests that the answer is obvious for all mammals and birds: they do! But people's intuitions begin to waver when it comes to reptiles, amphibians, fish, or invertebrates. Do lobsters feel pain when boiled alive? A recent study by the Norwegian government said that they don't. But Norway has a significant lobster fishing industry to protect, so it's easy regard the study with suspicion.
