    The blue Maine lobster just caught in Nova Scotia is so incredibly rare that it may continue to beat the odds for its species. Said to occur in about one in two million individuals, not only is*this*Maine lobster one of the lucky blue, but unlike the millions of lobsters eaten every year this fortunate fellow is destined to go live out his life in an aquarium.

    Which aquarium is still uncertain as*Canadian lobster boat captain Bobby Stoddard who took these images is offering the blue Maine lobster to the highest bidder, someone who doesn’t want to eat it. The rare gene that creates blue lobsters (or one like it) has been exploited to create the*aquarium*strain of the electric blue crayfish.


    Can you imagine this big bad blue cruiser, strutting in its aquarium at a full adult size of 24 inches, two whole feet of wicked blue crustacean? We’d love to see this rare blue Maine lobster someday so here’s to hoping it goes to a public aquarium institution where it will be put on display for all to see. [CNN via HuffPost]
