SCARBOROUGH, ME (NBC News) — A Maine lobsterman caught an exceptionally rare lobster over the weekend.
The calico lobster was snagged off the coast of Scarborough, Maine.
The crustacean named, “Friendly Krueger”, now resides in a tank at the Scarborough Fish and Lobster Company.
The name is a reference to the horror movie character Freddy Krueger due to the lobster’s Halloween-like calico coloration.
The owners aren’t sure if they will sell the lobster or donate it to the University of New England.
Calico lobsters are very rare – occurring about once in every 30 million lobsters.
