A rare two-toned lobster was caught by a fisherman off the coast of Maine on Friday. It’s a 1-in 50-million find.
The lobster’s color is bifurcated down the middle, meaning half of its body is black and half is red.
Captain Daryl Dunham caught the lobster near Stonington, Maine, which is a cluster of islands southwest of Bar Harbor.
He’s donating the crustacean to the Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries where it will be temporarily displayed alongside two calico lobsters — which are a 1-in-30-million find — and a blue lobster that’s 1-in-2-million.
We’ve seen some pretty cool lobsters in our marine touch tank over the years, but this one might be a first! Visit...
The two-toned lobster will remain in the center’s touch tank, where visitors can feel the lobster’s shell, for a few weeks.
The center said it plans to release the lobster back into the ocean soon.
