Maine fisherman catches extremely rare two-colored lobster

5 posts in this topic

SCARBOROUGH, Maine, July 7 (UPI) -- A fisherman in Maine last week caught a two-toned lobster in an extremely rare find that experts say has a one in 50 million chance of occurring.

Employees from the Pine Point Fisherman's Co-Op in Scarborough could not identify the fisherman who brought in the catch, but they speculated he was local.

 

The lobster has a half-orange tail and one orange claw but an all-brown body, making it unique even from regular split-colored lobsters that are typically colored brown on one side and orange on the other.

"There's probably quite a few genetic mutations that created that type of pattern," Adam Baukus, scientist at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute, told NECN.

I painted a car once one side was a green the other blue . People asked way and I told them that they could only see one side at a time .

If I would have been the fisherman that trapped this guy I would have freaked . It could only be  Act Of God .
