This one-pound lobster was caught last week off the coast of Beverly, Massachusetts. Her color combination occurs about once in every 50 million lobsters, officials say.
The fisherman who caught the lobster named her Pinchy, according to CBS Boston. The aquarium will either exhibit Pinchy or use her for live presentations.
“Splits” — lobsters with colors split down their middle — are more rare than red lobsters, but typically caught in the New England area. (And then there are these guys.)
