    A rare blue lobster has been caught by fishermen in the US.

    The crustacean owes its colour to a gene found in just one in five million of the creatures.

    The female is housed at the Audubon Society Centre in Bristol, Rhode Island, US reports the Mirror.

    Centre director Jeffrey Hall said: "Now that it's come out with this brilliant blue colour, it's attracting a lot of attention.

    OMG I had a blue lobster as a child.
    In a saltwater tank we had. My dad caught it while fishing and brought it home for the tank.
