So you think blue lobsters are rare? The New England Aquarium is holding a lobster that's way rarer than that.

The aquarium in Boston says it has a calico lobster that could
be a 1-in-30 million find.

The lobster is dark with bright orange and yellow spots. It was caught off Winter Harbor, Maine, and is being held at the New England Aquarium for the Biomes Marine Biology Center, a science center in Rhode Island.

Aquarium spokesman Tony Lacasse says calico lobsters are quite
rare.

The Maine-based Lobster Conservancy says perhaps one lobster in
1 million is blue, while both the orange and calico versions might be as rare as 1 in 30 million.
