It was caught about a year ago, off the coast of Massachusetts, and was immediately taken to the New England Aquarium for further tests and exploration! The female lobster that you see is one of the most curious and rare sea creatures of the ocean, as was said by the biologist Bill Murphy. Although 2012 was a milestone year for catching strange colored lobsters, from yellow to blue, The bicolor, Pinchy, is a really rare kind. To be exact one in 100 million lobsters!

This particular lobster, has been so well separated by these two colors, black and orange, which is due to genetic mutation, resembling more or less an undercooked lobster! Most of the two color lobsters are also hermaphrodites, while Pinchy is clearly a female lobster, and it makes it even more rare, added Bill.
