That animal was named Heidi, which was named after the fisherman in honor of his granddaughter. He said that he had no intention of selling it and also had no intention of putting it in the pot.
Coppersmith said he is looking for an aquarium that is interested in getting the rare lobster so that it can grow and grow safely.

The “cotton candy colored” lobster has an exoskeleton that is similar in color to an opal stone, and is the result of a genetic mutation.
Animals with rare colors are disadvantaged in nature because it is more difficult to camouflage in a hostile environment, which makes them easy prey.
