Poseidon the giant lobster (4 pics)
Named "Poseidon", the giant lobster measures two feet in length and a whopping nine-and a-quarter pounds. It is around five times the size of the average lobster.
Spiny lobsters don't usually occur in British waters, but is usually found off the west coast of Africa and in the Mediterranean. It grows much bigger than its cousin and can survive at depths of up to 600 metres. Poseidon will be kept in the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay; experts are now consulting record books to see if Poseidon is the biggest one ever landed in Britain.
