The Akron Zoo quickly sprang into action and rescued the Blue crustacean from the Red Lobster in Cuyahoga Falls. The lobster has been given the name Clawde.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. There are some pretty rare things with the word blue in their name, right? A blue diamond or once in a blue moon, but what about a blue lobster? Well, an Ohio zoo manager tells NPR there might only be a 1 in 200 million chance of capturing a blue American lobster in the wild, and one of them has turned up at a Red Lobster, of all places. The Akron Zoo quickly sprang into action and rescued the blue crustacean. He has since been given the name Clawde.
