When a Virginia Red Lobster received its delivery, staff noticed an orange and black spotted lobster. The calico critter turned out to be an extraordinarily rare find. A one in 30 million chance.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A lobster made it out of a restaurant alive. Staff at a Virginia Red Lobster received their regular delivery of live seafood, and in that delivery, they noticed an orange and black spotted lobster. The calico critter turned out to be an extraordinarily rare find, a one in 30 million chance. Staff nicknamed the lucky guy Freckles, and he now has a new home because Freckles was taken to the Virginia Living Museum. It's MORNING EDITION.
