Red Lobster Employee Found Rare Blue Lobster, Sends it to Zoo
Akron Zoo posted photos of their newest resident yesterday, thanks to the good eye of a Red Lobster employee who knew what he found was something special.
Lobsters are typically red or a shade of brown, but for every 2 million out there, one of them is blue. The color is caused by a genetic anomaly.
Red Lobster staff lovingly named the little dude Clawde, after the restaurant's mascot.
"Our animal care staff was able to quickly spring into action and prepare a new home for him," the zoo said on Facebook. "Clawde is acclimating to his new home here at the Akron Zoo, in a special tank that has been dubbed 'Clawde's Man Cave' by his care team."
