"The representative species for all large Lobsters, they've become a lasting symbol of longevity. They live between rocks in shallow waters with octopuses as their natural enemies. Only Octopuses are capable of reaching in between the rocks with their long arms to catch them."

Spiny lobsters, also known as langouste or rock lobsters, are a family (Palinuridae) of about 60 species of achelate crustaceans, in the Decapoda Reptantia. Although they superficially resemble true lobsters in terms of overall shape and having a hard carapace and exoskeleton, the two groups are not closely related.
