I read an article about a blue lobster rescued from ending up on a dinner plate at Red Lobster and I did a little research into what colors lobsters actually come in.

I was surprised to find out they come in a whole rainbow of colors. This article from orange to blue to white. There’s even a bi-colored orange and black lobster called a Halloween lobster.

This article not only has photos of the many crazy colors these crustaceans come in, it explains the science behind their unusual pigments.

Everything from diet to genetics to the time of year factor in. Check out photos of all the rare colors and even see video of the Halloween lobster. This guy/gal isn’t only two colors, it’s two sexes at the same time.
