This gorgeous lobster has been categorized as a rare “cotton candy” lobster. According to National Geographic, one of these pastel pink, baby blue, and periwinkle colored lobsters are found every 4 or 5 years. Why this shell coloration happens is unclear. It could be caused by a genetic mutation, or perhaps, from relying on a low-pigment food source. (photo by David Charns WMTW)
