Last week a lobsterman from Salem, Massachusetts, Dana Duhaime caught a rare lobster in one of his traps in Bakers Channel.

The 1-pound, rare female lobster has two colours, orange and black, with the two colors perfectly split down the lobster’s back.

He named it “Pinchy” after the famous “Simpsons” TV lobster.

Biologists said that a “split” lobster that is characterized by two distinct colors on each side of its body is something that occurs once out of every 50 to 100 million lobsters.

“Pinchy” will soon be on public display at the  Boston’s New England Aquarium.
