ROCKLAND, Maine (CBS) – A 27-pound lobster caught off the coast of Maine won’t be on anyone’s dinner plate any time soon.

The lobster was caught on Friday by fisherman Robert Malone.

Malone named it Rocky, because it was caught near Rockland, Maine.

He gave it to the Department of Marine Resources, which says it has never seen a lobster this big.

Rocky will soon be released back into the wild, where it will live a normal life.
