Petting Zoo: Rare orange lobster almost becomes dinner!

The lobster in this story was lucky to escape the dinner plate! Lobsters are typically a brownish color — they turn bright red once they are cooked.  According to Lobster Anywhere, orange lobsters are very rare. Only one in 30 million lobsters caught are orange!

Also rare are blue lobsters whose color is the result of a genetic mutation. Only one in two million lobsters caught are blue.
