Wow, Jesse Joe that is a beautiful lobster. I am happy to hear they are not going to eat him.

Thank you for sharing.

That is one lucky lobster. I guess his colouring saved his (or her) life.

It makes you wonder just what happened to make it look like that.

DSR, you took the words right out of my mouth!! That was my first thought also! I'm thinking that maybe it's a mutated gene? It would be interesting to see if they could breed an offspring with the same coloring.

P.S. Interesting that this story turned up on Martin Luther King's birthday... a creature with two colors. If they hadn't saved it, maybe all the other lobsters would have been prejudiced toward it (hehe)
