Several international news reports say that the 27-pound lobster is almost 40 inches long. The aquarium headed by Director Aimee Hayden-Rodriquez explained, that the giant lobster was named after Rocky the boxer because of its claws that can probably give a big punch. Rodriguez revealed that the lobster will be released back into the ocean soon.

The 27-pound lobster is reportedly the biggest lobster that was turned over to the Maine aquarium.

A typical lobster being served for consumption reportedly weighs from one to two pounds.
