WHOA! A Very Rare White Lobster Was Caught Off The Maine Coast
WOW!!! What are the odds?!
Well, according to the story from WMTW, the odds are 1 in 100 MILLION that you'll catch a white lobster. Also according to the story, the lobstermen that caught it, put it back in the ocean. I'm so glad to hear that!
I would never be able to eat it and if I caught it. My first reaction would be to put it back in the ocean, but I admit, I also would kinda want to keep it as a pet. It looks like a huge opal! It would have the best lobster life ever. (except for the fact that I pulled it out of it's natural habitat and all....)
Now that we're on the subject - I love lobster as much as the next guy, but I admit, I can't really stand to see them climb all over each other in the big tank at the grocery store. It makes me feel bad. To relieve the carnivorous guilt I have, sometimes I'll think, that they must be saying, 'oh excuse me, pardon me, excuse me - did I step on you? my bad.,' etc., etc. Then I giggle and buy some butter and lemon.
