The unusually coloured crustacean was saved from the dinner table when it was spotted at a fish market.
Fisherman Rex Goldsmith decided that the lobster was too unique to eat so he instead donated it to the Natural History Museum. Scientists believe the striking blue colour is down to a rare genetic variant. "It's the most striking blue lobster I have seen in my 30 years in the business and was too nice to put in a pot and boil," said Mr. Goldsmith.
An incredible electric-blue lobster has been saved from the dinner table after it was spotted at a fish market and rehomed. The striking crustacean was found by stunned fishermen off the east coast of Scotland and displayed for sale at a fish market in London.
