As you can see, lobster contains a lot of salt, phosphorus, calcium, acidic content, and a hint of fat and sugar.

This means that unfortunately lobster is not good for hamsters to eat. Its salt content, especially is too much for hamsters to handle and may make them sick if they eat it. A food to avoid feeding them.
