The Halloween lobster: The New England Aquarium said it’s a 1-pound female lobster with a rare coloration known as a split.

The Boston Globe reported that scientists believe the condition results in the lobster’s early cellular development. The fisherman who caught the seasonally colored crustacean in a trap last week is from Beverly, a seaside community 20 miles northeast of Boston.
