Extremely Rare White Lobsters
We’ve all heard about the two great white shark sightings off the New England coast this summer, but what about the white lobsters?

Not one but two of the extremely rare mutations were found off the Maine coast this week—and it’s no small coincidence, considering the genetic abnormality is estimated to appear in only 1 out of every 100 million lobsters.

Lobsterman Joe Bates caught one off the Rockland breakwater earlier this week, with Bret Philbrick catching the second off of Owls Head on Thursday, The Portland Press Herald reported.

One of the creatures will go to Main State Aquarium while the second will be donated to lobster supply store Brooks Trap Mill.
