This is insane.
The average restaurant lobster is 2-3 pounds for a good one, 4-5 pounds if you're lucky and looking to spend a TON of money.
Well, fishermen in Maine caught a 27-pound behemoth!
The lobsters crusher claw is about the size of a human head!
But instead of selling the lobster to a restaurant for an insane amount of money, the fishermen donated it to the Maine State aquarium.
It was the largest the aquarium had ever seen by 4 whole pounds!
The best part? The aquarium released him back into the ocean!!
Yay, happy ending!!!
