When you think of lobsters, you picture them in the color red because that’s how certain restaurants market them … but not so fast my friend.

Meghan LaPlante, 14, and her father caught a blue lobster south of Portland, Maine.

It’s reported that only 1-2 million lobsters are blue, as most are dark green or brown.

The blue is caused from a genetic defect. The lobster’s name is Skylar and it will be donated to an aquarium.
