Scientists have discovered that prawns do feel pain. They discovered this by rubbing acetic acid onto the antennae of 144 of them. The prawns reacted by rubbing and grooming the affected area which is consistent to how other creatures react when they feel pain. I just feel a bit sorry for the poor prawns in the experiment; it seems a very mean way for the scientists to test the theory.
