    Fuzzy White Lobster
    It's rare to find a completely new species, but science has done it. A new, albino, "fuzzy" lobster has been found near the heated ocean vents at the bottom of the ocean in 2005.

    Like most creatures found living in the unique ecosystems of hot thermal vents, turns out its not too big at 15 cm (6 inches). Then again, it's not tiny either.

    A google link to the new species also revealed a blue lobster

    Am I the only one wondering what colour they'd be after cooking? lol
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    So instead of cooking the rare lobster, which would have turned red just as ordinary ones do while being cooked, Steve put it into a cooler and took it to the Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration where it will be in an elementary school class to help children to learn about this species. He won't be alone though as they already have two other blue lobsters at the aquarium already.
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.
