Bill Coppersmith Caught an Ultra Rare Blue and Pink Cotton-Candy Colored Lobster in Casco Bay

Have a look at Haddie! A lobster, with the color of cotton candy, was spotted off the coast of Maine. She is the first blue and pink lobster caught by a lobsterman in Maine. 

The gorgeous creature was discovered in Casco Bay by Bill Coppersmith, a Maine lobsterman, and Get Maine Lobster supplier.

This is the first time a Get Maine Lobster lobsterman has caught a cotton candy lobster, according to Mark Murrell, CEO of Get Maine Lobster. Coppersmith, on the other hand, told CNN that he is no stranger to collecting unusual lobsters, having previously captured orange and white lobsters. Haddie and the other one-of-a-kind creatures were named after his grandchildren.

According to Murrell, Haddie's unique color is the result of a genetic abnormality. Crustaceans with unusual hues have a hard time integrating into their surroundings, according to the Maine Lobstermen's Community Alliance, making them susceptible to predators. Haddie will now be transported to the Seacoast Science Center in Rye, New Hampshire, where she will be much safer and cozier.
