Man Immediately Calls His Wife After Pulling This Out Of The Water (Photos)

There is a one in two million chance that you’ll come across this rare blue lobster. Wayne Nickerson has caught two in his lifetime. Nickerson, however, doesn’t have plans to eat this one. He says he may donate it to an aquarium to put on display.

The Massachusetts man and his wife Jan Nickerson have named the crustacean Bleu, according to Fox News. The blue color in these rare lobsters is caused by a genetic defect where there is an overproduction of protein. Though blue lobsters are rare, the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine says that bright red lobsters, yellow and calico are even rarer.

Jan Nickerson is keeping Bleu in a holding tank and says she would like to give him to the New England Aquarium in Boston. The media relations director for the New England Aquarium said Bleu was “just spectacular” and that they’d love to have the lobster if they have the space for him.

If Bleu does get donated we’ll hope that he make it through the transfer safely. A giant 15 pound lobster named Larry was supposed to be eaten at a Florida restaurant but a rescue group and local businesses arranged to have him donated to the Maine State Aquarium. He however died on the way there.
