Atlantic lobster are usually a boring greenish-black when they're hauled in, but these five lobster showcase a range in pigmentation.

According to Wikipedia,

"Despite the rarity of strangely colored lobsters, many more of them are reported being caught. It is unclear as to whether this is an artifact of social media (i.e. it is easier to report catching a strangely colored lobster), or if it is due to a drop in predator populations."
