Incredibly Rare 1-in-50 Million Orange-and-Black Lobster Found in Maine

A fisherman in Stonington, Maine, found an incredibly rare two-toned lobster, which went on display at the Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries. Due to its unique coloring, the animal was spared the fate of being cooked and was released back into the ocean.

According to CNN, Captain Daryl Dunham was the fisherman who discovered the unusually pigmented crustacean in September 2019. The man was fishing around the Stonigham area, which is southwest of the Bar Harbor, when he came across the lobster. The animal is split symmetrically down the middle, and it's half black and half orange. The chances of finding one such lobster are one in 50 million.
