TSA agents found a huge lobster inside a checked piece of baggage yesterday at Logan International Airport in Boston.

Crustaceans reportedly aren't an uncommon sight at New England-area airports, but this one caught the attention of TSA workers as it weighed more than 20 pounds and was found in a cooler.

Lobsters are allowed on planes — even as a carry-on — but are required to be contained in clear, spill-proof containers, according to a report by CBS affiliate WBZ-TV
