Cotton candy LOBSTERS exist, and our minds our blown
Nature is deadly.
Let's face it, the world can be a dark and depressing place at times.
However, when things get grim, I like to remind myself that the world has some pretty awesome elements too.
Recently, I discovered something that made me smile for hours.
There's a very rare kind of lobster out there, called cotton candy lobsters.
Just let that sink in for a minute.
So at first I kind of thought it was a hoax, and maybe it is, but for now I'm choosing to believe in this pastel crustacean.
The famous lobster, known as “Lucky,” was caught by Canadian fisherman Robinson Russell off the coast of Maine.
He told CBC:
"We were just pulling traps when some guy was like, 'Whoa, look at this,'" he said. "We all stopped what we were doing for a minute to check it out."
Known as an albino lobster, the chances of actually catching one are incredible... 1 in 100 million to be exact.
This makes them the rarest lobster in all the land.
Naturally, they're not known as cotton candy lobsters in science, but they sure do resemble the sugary treat.
They also look like unicorns. Will we rename them unicorn lobsters?
Thankfully, Lucky the lobster is OFF LIMITS in terms of serving him for dinner (which makes perfect sense).
The creature currently calls Huntsman Marine Science Centre in St. Andrews home.
"It’s going to live out a happy life in that aquarium. What a lucky lobster!”
In conclusion, I just want to say YAY for Lucky, the magical lobster!
