Scarborough, Maine - A Maine lobsterman says he and his 14-year-old daughter caught a one-in-two-million crustacean: a blue lobster.
WCSH-TV (http://on.wcsh6.com/1loUcOM ) reports Jay LaPlante of the Miss Meghan Lobster Catch company caught the curious creature in Scarborough around 10:45 a.m. Saturday. LaPlante and daughter Meghan were hauling traps when she discovered the bright blue critter.
The story has a happy ending for the lobster. Meghan named the lobster Skyler and donating it to the Maine State Aquarium, far from any dinner rolls or pats of butter. The aquarium has three other blue lobsters and an orange one.
LaPlante said it's the first time he has caught a blue lobster.
