Translucent Lobster

Check out the rare translucent 'ghost' lobster caught off the coast of Maine


Would you eat a ghost lobster? Last month, fisherman Alex Todd caught a rare translucent lobster in Maine.

According to the Maine Coast Fishermen's Association Facebook page, “This lobster probably has a genetic condition called Leucism which isn’t a total loss of pigment (which would make it an albino) but instead a partial loss,” it said on Facebook. “This is why you can still see some hints of blue on the shell and color on the eyes.”

Todd told the Guardian that he threw the lobster back into the ocean because it was a female and might have been carrying eggs.

Which means soon, there could be some baby ghost lobsters running around.
