Three feet long. Ten pounds plus. A lobster worth wrestling.

The BBC reports:
Chris Hovard, from Wyke Regis, Dorset, was diving when the creature - weighing more than 10lbs - scuttled towards him near Weymouth jetty on Saturday.

The 51-year-old, who has been diving for 34 years, said he had never seen a crustacean "anywhere near this size".

The lobster, he named Lemmy after the lead singer of rock band Motorhead, is now at Weymouth's Sea Life Park.
Rescued from boiling water. Damn.

I'll see your giant lobster and raise you one giant squid.
It must be something in the water.

No great epicurean loss. A ten-pound lobster probably would be about as tender as a snow tire, only not quite so tasty.
