Rare Blue Lobster found at Not-So-Rare Red Lobster

A rare blue lobster has been discovered in Ohio — at a Red Lobster, of all places.

The blue-shelled crustacean was found Sunday in a shipment of lobsters that had been sent to the restaurant chain’s Cuvahoga Falls location.

Only one out of every 2 million lobsters is born blue, ocean experts say.

Being born with a genetic mutation turned out to be a good thing for the lobster, which was spared the boiling pot and named “Clawde” by restaurant employees.

It’s since been sent to the Akron Zoo, where it will live out of the rest of its natural life in a special tank dubbed “Clawde’s Man Cave,” Monterey Bay officials say.
