Just want to say WOW. Found this pic online... I know the Australian Freshwater Spiny Lobster or Murry Crayfish gets huge, but REALLY? Think this is real? :shrug:

that's obviously fake. The woman's probably 10 feet from the camera and the crayfish is maybe 6 inches away.

There is no way she could hold up a lobster as big as she is like it was made of paper. Also, the lobster is at a different focal depth from everything else in the photo

Fake pic or not, the Murry Cray is still an awsome invert! Especially impressive for freshwater. I read they average over a foot weighing near 2 lbs. It makes me wonder... The Atlantic Maine Lobster averages about the same, yet there has been specimens caught over 40 lbs! Just something to ponder. :shrug:
