Rare Lobster Rescued from Supermarket!

 
Posted August 4th, 2014 @ 8:21am

Have you ever seen a YELLOW lobster?!? Probably not because they are “one in 30 million” but, some lucky people who shopped at a Florida Publix got to meet Libbie, the yellow lobster. 

 

A lot of people came together to save Libbie; “the staff kept the lobster from being sold” (for food) and Marybeth Jeitner and Heather Chalmers “bought Libbie from the supermarket and kept her in a saltwater tank, cooling the tank with ice and frozen bottles.” 

 

They asked many companies if they could take Libbie and even considered letting the lobster free into the ocean, but they finally found Libbie a home that has all of the necessary items to take care of her! Libbie now lived at the Seacoast Science Center in Rye, New Hampshire.
