(Newser) – A rare orange-brown split-colored lobster has turned up off the coast of Maine. And by rare we mean it's a one-in-50-million creature, according to the Lobster Institute. The Press Herald reports that the unusual lobster arrived last week at Pine Point Fisherman's Co-Op in Scarborough, courtesy of an unnamed lobsterman. The institute reports that only the albino lobster is rarer, with the chances of catching it at one in 100 million.
