Meet Calvin the awesome calico lobster!
“A calico lobster that had been living in obscurity off the coast of Maine has now been catapulted into a sort of celebrity, thanks to its rare coloring: a calico mix of orange and yellow spots. Researchers say it could be a 1 in 30 million specimen.
The invertebrate was caught off Winter Harbor, Maine; it was saved from the cooking pot at Jasper White’s Summer Shack restaurant in Cambridge, Mass., after the staff noticed its striking coloration. Chef Jasper White tells The Boston Globe that he named the lobster Calvin — and contacted the New England Aquarium, which then made plans to pick Calvin up. The lobster will eventually take up residence at the Biomes Marine Biology Center in Rhode Island, according to the aquarium.
A post at the aquarium’s blog explains that lobsters come in many different colors, ranging from brown and orange to white. ”While white appears to be the most rare at an estimated 1 in 100 million, coming in second place with an approximate 1 in 30 million is the calico lobster,” according to the aquarium’s exhibit galleries blog.”
