Man comes across terrifying massive lobster while diving

Diving for lobster can sometimes be a terrifying task as it is, but one diver got the fright of his life recently.

Divers in California hunt a species called the "California Spiny Lobster" which only comes out at night.

The beasts look nasty, to say the least.

They're hard to catch because they move at quick speeds and hunting season falls between October until March, when the water is frighteningly cold.

A terrifying YouTube video shows one diver searching for the strange species when he comes across the motherlode -- and it's too big for him to capture in one hand. See it for yourself:
