Bourne, MA — A rare calico lobster was spotted among the lobster tanks at the Lobster Trap Company facility at Cape Cod. One in about 25 million, it is a very rare find. They are not sure where it came from as it was mixed in with a large delivery. Because of its spotted coloring, it was easy to see among the dozens of other live lobster floating around in the tank.
The typical lobster is colored a muddy brown with hints of red, which is the perfect color for hiding from predators. Other rare colored lobsters such as calico, blue, yellow or green usually do not last long as they are easily spotted by predators on the bottom of the ocean.
