A Nova Scotia man is the proud owner of a very unusual blue lobster.

Bobby Stoddard says he and his crew caught it last month. The bright blue lobster is a very rare find.

The University of Maine Lobster Institute says blue lobsters are a one-in-two-million phenomenon. They get their color because of a genetic variation.

The lobster is cooling its claws in a holding tank until Stoddard can decide what to do with it. He offered it to a nearby ocean research institute, but they didn't want it.
