Split personality

This is no Halloween trick ... this 2-toned black and orange lobster was discovered this week in the waters of nearby Beverly, MA by Salem lobsterman Dana Duhaime. Scientists believe this rare split coloring—which only happens 1 in every 50 to 100 million lobsters—develops during a cellular division when the lobster egg is first fertilized. It's now living at the New England Aquarium. What a catch!
