HP – A Maine lobsterman says he and his 14-year-old daughter caught a one-in-two-million crustacean: a blue lobster.
The story has a happy ending for the lobster. Meghan says she is naming it Skyler and donating it to the Maine State Aquarium, far from any dinner rolls or pats of butter. The aquarium says it has three other blue lobsters and an orange one.
Oh hey isn’t that cute, a blue lobster and they named it and everything. How amazing that only one in two million lobsters are blue like that, what a crazy story.
Hey Maine, why don’t you suck on this one in 30 million calico lobster that’s here on The Cape.
CCT – The calico lobster is indeed special. According to experts, calico lobsters are the second rarest lobsters–second only to albino lobsters. Calicos, with a mottled orange and black shell, are a one in 30 million find, according to the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine. Other rarities include blue, yellow, split color and albino lobsters.
Chris King encourages folks to stop by Cape Tip Seafood at 18 Old Colony Way in Orleans to take a peek at this fascinating find.
The second most rare lobster in the world, and we didn’t even bother to name it. So go ahead and throw a parade or something for your precious little “Skyler”, but do us a favor and tone it down a little until you have an albino or two OK?
Don’t forget to tip your waiter Maine, because you just got served. Your move Maine, your move.
P.S. How do you not name that blue lobster “Violet” after the girl in Willy Wonka, just an absolute no brainer…
