Giant Lobster Found

This Giant Pink Spiny lobster is around five times the size of the average lobsters. Named 'Poseidon' for his size and strength, this giant lobster dwarfs others, measuring two feet in length and a whopping nine-and a-quarter pounds. He was accidentally caught by the fishing boat Brittania around 200 miles south west of Newlyn, Cornwall. Spiny lobsters are actually a type of crayfish and don't usually occur in British waters. The crew were fishing for stony bass on a wreck at a depth of 238 metres when they found him.

Poseidon is now on display at the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay.Staff at the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay were shocked to see quite how big he was, especially when he proudly displayed his huge antennae which reach over the back of aquarium worker Rachel Rigby's head. Link
