The life of a uncommon calico lobster was spared last month when a seafood market owner in Maryland believed it was”unique”– however it was a lot more unique than they believed.
The lobster, found by the owner of Ocean City Seafood in East Silver Spring on Dec. 21, is a calico. The chances of discovering such a shellfish, according to the University of Maine’s Lobster Institute , are around one in 30 million.
But, according to a news release published to business’ Facebook page on Saturday, the owner stated they simply “wished to let [the lobster] live out its life in a tank in his store instead of end up being somebody’s supper.”
The unusual animal, called for its mottled orange and black shell, was called Eve and was positioned inside a different location meant to”keep her safe.”
Despite a barrier, other lobsters in the tank obviously”broke down the divider and have actually been gathered around Eve, securing her, since.”
When the store’s owner found out simply how uncommon”Eve “is, they connected to the Baltimore Aquarium, which prepares to be homing her momentarily, prior to she’s moved completely to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta.
