For one lucky lobster in the waters off Canada's Prince Edward Island, getting caught means a cushy aquarium tank, not a pot of boiling water.
The clawed crustacean is getting the royal treatment because he's blue -- not sad blue, but blue blue. A rare genetic mutation causes a blue lobster to occur in only 1 out of several MILLION lobsters.
Note to chefs: They may look different on the outside, but once you get them in a pot, blue lobsters turn red just like everybody else. Melted butter, anyone?
