Two-toned lobster is a horse of a different color

A fisherman in Maine caught a rare lobster with a two-toned shell that was split directly down the middle: one half orange, one half brown. Instead of being eaten, this one-in-50 million creature will be studied at a research facility.

>> lobster getting lots of attention. caught by a fisherman. take a look. it's incredible when you see that picture. two tone lobster. almost looked half baked with one side orange and the other side brown. not going to end up on a dinner table any time soon. it will be studied at a research facility. the odds are said to be 1 in 50 million. it's like a stripe down the middle.
