Rare Split-Colored Lobster Caught off Maine Coast

Jul 7, 2015

NECN: A rare, two-toned lobster has been caught off the coast of Maine. It's part orange, part brown, and could be close to "one of a kind," according to some researchers. 

"There's probably quite a few genetic mutations that created that type of pattern," said Adam Baukus, a scientist at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. Baukus said he has never seen a split lobster quite like this one.
