    A gorgeous giant lobster was recently caught by a fisherman in Fuding, southeastern China’s Fujian province. Weighing more than 3 kilograms, the creature is 1.4-meters-long in antennae.

    The fisherman surnamed Guo said he caught the lobster with his friends on August 11 while netting fish out in the sea. "We have never seen such a giant lobster," Guo said. He later posted the photo of the lobster on social media.

    The picture shows the eye-catching coloring of the lobster, quite different from ordinary ones.

    Many of Guo's friends said the creature was an ornate spiny lobster worth hundreds of thousands of RMB. A man from Fuzhou, capital city of Fujian even offered 350,000 RMB for the lobster.

    A similar lobster was captured more than two years ago in Wenling, Zhejiang province, and later sold for 600,000 RMB.
