So, this lobster grew a 6 fingered hand.

Now that is amazing. They say all life started in the ocean. I wonder if the crustacean era is upon us and we will all be demolished and eaten by the lobsters we have boiled alive and eaten o.0

I must admit that I wondered if a lobster evolution was stopped by catching that one.

I don't know if I want my lobster giving me the finger before I eat it or developing Edward Scissorhands like appendages.

First it was colored variations now it's physical mutations.

I would be questioning what's in those waters that these "rare" specimens are showing up every few months.

What's the likelyhood of pulling 3-4 rare different mutations from the same area in a short while time and is it not a coincidence with a lobster population explosion?
