Incredible electric-blue lobster saved from food market

The lobster was caught off the east coast of Scotland before being displayed at a market in London.

Fishmonger Rex Goldsmith thought the lobster was too nice to eat, so bought it and handed it over to researchers at the Natural History Museum.

Scientist believe the lobster, which is normally a much darker blue has got its unusually bright blue colour due to a genetic variant.

The lobster will soon be on display at the London Aquarium, but first it has to go through quarantine to safeguard the other lobsters on display.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
