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!
