Belhaven Lobsters:  "You catch one blue lobster and another one comes along two weeks later!! Slightly more vivid than our last one, this bluey has been donated to @lobsterhatchery at North Berwick. Their names are Cobalt and Sapphire. Blue lobsters are rare. There are other rarer lobsters such as the yellow lobster and the albino or crystal lobster, which occurs in only 1 in 100 million lobsters."

The lobster's blue coloration is a result of a genetic defect that causes the lobster to produce more of a certain protein. Blue lobsters occur about one in every two million lobsters. Once cooked, the blue lobster would taste the same as the other red lobsters.

Blue lobsters might not be the most unusual, but they are undoubtedly the prettiest to look at.
