'Sea monster'-sized lobster caught after Hurricane Nicole

"Hurricane Nicole blew in some sea monsters," reads the caption on an eye-popping Facebook post by Sanctuary Marine Bermuda.

The attached photos show a gigantic spiny lobster caught by accident and then released back into the ocean, the Bermuda-based fishing charter service said in the comments. A video posted to the page shows the beastly crustacean weighing in at just under 14 pounds on a digital scale.

"Hopefully people will see the hook in it's toe and realise (sic) we caught it by accident and only pulled it on land to get the hook out and untangle it from our fishing line before letting it back go," someone from the Sanctuary Marine Facebook page commented.

The Facebook post comes days after Hurricane Nicole, a Category 3 storm, brought winds of up to 115 mph to Bermuda.
