Super Rare Halloween Lobster On Display At New England Aquarium!

| Filed under: HalloweenSea CreaturesAmazing

Super rare half black half orange lobster is New England Aquarium's Halloween mascot!!

Whoa! What the heck kind of lobster is that??

Did someone paint half of a lobster black??

Nope! That's au natural!

Last year, a lobsterman Dana Duhime, caught the 1-pound rare female lobster and immediately knew he had something special.

The lobster, named Pinchy, was given to the New England Aquarium and was stuck in a mandatory 30-day quarantine last Halloween, so she was unable to participate in any festivities. Even though she's perfectly colored for the season!

But not this year!!

This year, the aquarium is all about Pinchy, allowing any child wearing a costume to get into the aquarium for free "to celebrate looking different," said an aquarium spokesman.

Pinchy sure is different! She's so rare, only about one in 100 MILLION lobsters will be dual-colored, perfectly split down the middle!

That's AH-mazing!

Wanna go see Pinchy in person?? She'll be on display at the New England Aquarium until November 3rd!
