Bicoloured bisexual lobster caught


A bizarre lobster with two colours and two sexes has been caught by fishermen off Nova Scotia.

According to CBC News, the lobster, which is half blue and half green-brown, has both male and female sexual organs.

Murray Townsend who caught the lobster told CBC: \"I\'ve seen lobsters of different colours, shades and markings, but nothing quite like this.\"

Paul Nickerson, a plant manager at I Deveau Fisheries told CBC he\'d never seen a hermaphroditic lobster in 20 years in the business: \"The female flipper on that one is only half the size it should be. I\'m thinking that it may not produce as female, but it might as male.\"

The lobster has been spared from eating and will be put on display at the Bedford Institute.
