Colorful Lobster Mutiara ready to be cooked in a seafront restaurant in Kota Kinabalu (Borneo)

The species is Panulirus ornatus (also called Mutiara, Ornate Rock Lobster or Ornate Spiny Lobster).­ Unlike true lobsters, rock lobsters don't have claws.­

For more information about this species, read en.­wikipedia.­org/­wiki/­Spiny_­lobster

I would be ashamed to eat such a beautiful creature.­.­.­ even though they taste so good!
