A 14-pound "monster" lobster was caught by a fisherman in Bermuda, right after Hurricane Nicole moved through the region.
 
Stretched out, its claws were two-feet long and local fishermen believe it is among the largest lobsters ever caught in that area.
 
After snapping some pictures, Capt. Matthew Jones and fellow fisherman Tristan Loescher put the lobster back into the water.
 
“We decided the best place for him was back in the ocean,” Jones said. “He’s much safer right where he is.”
