A rare blue lobster – thought to be found in about one in two million lobsters, according to research by the University of Maine – was discovered in a shipment to Arnold’s Lobster & Clam Bar, a seafood restaurant in Eastham, Massachusetts. These images, uploaded on June 8, show the blue crustacean, which arrived in a shipment from Ipswich Shellfish Group, CBS Boston reported. Nathan Nickerson III, the owner of Arnold’s Lobster & Clam Bar, told Storyful over Messenger that he planned to donate the lobster to the St Louis Aquarium. According to the University of Maine’s research, even rarer than blue lobsters are elusive yellow lobsters, live red lobsters (referring to lobsters that are naturally red colored, rather than simply turning red after they are cooked), calico lobsters, and albino lobsters. The chances of finding an albino lobster are estimated at one in 100 million, though both an albino lobster and a blue lobster were found in New England within the same week in September 2014.
