This is a video from a Maine lobsterman (a man who catches lobsters, not Lobsterman the superhero) of an ultra-rare ‘cotton candy’ colored lobster. Buttered cotton candy? Gross! According to the folks at direct-to-consumer seafood company Get Maine Lobster (a totally reliable source), they estimate the genetic anomaly could occur as infrequently as 1-in-100-million lobsters born. Now that’s rare. Still, you’re 1-in-7.753-billion humans alive today, so even rarer. Never forget that. Born In Space: the feel-good blog.
Thanks to my dad, who’s more of a salmon guy anyways.
