Grocery store workers find rare orange lobster

 

 

AP: Workers at a Massachusetts supermarket have found a rare orange lobster. Supermarkets said in a Facebook post workers at their Westborough store found the lobster in a shipment of crustaceans from Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. It has since donated the lobster to the New England Aquarium in Boston.

The Lobster Institute at the University of Maine says the likelihood of a lobster being orange is about 1 in 30 million. The New England Aquarium says the lobster is about 7 to 9 years old. It says the crustacean is lucky to be alive because its color was “flashing a neon sign” to predators. The lobster will either stay in Boston or go to another aquarium in Japan.
