Rare Yellow Lobster is 1 in 30 Million, Sent to Cape Cod Restaurant

This lobster will catch your eye, but not because you're imagining its tail dipped in butter. "Fiona" the lobster is bright orange and yellow, even though she's never been near a boiling pot.

Specialists tell The Boston Globe this "yellow lobster" is one in 30 million.

Fiona was recently caught off Canada and given by a friend to Nathan Nickerson, the owner of Arnold's Lobster and Clam Bar in Eastham, on Cape Cod.

New England Aquarium director of research Michael Tlusty said a rare genetic mutation produces yellow lobsters. Life isn't easy for such animals — their bright colors make it easy for predators to spot them.

Nickerson said the predators at his restaurant will never get a hold of Fiona. He said it would be like steaming a Rembrandt.
