Canadian lobsterman pulls nabs 1-in-2 million BLUE lobster

Bobby Stoddard is a second generation lobster-boat captain. The blue lobster (above and below) that he caught off the coast is only the 2nd one pulled in by his about 50 years.

"This is the only one that I've ever seen," Stoddard told CNN. "And my dad has been a lobsterman of about 55 years, and he caught one about 45 years ago, but hadn't seen one since."

Stoddard has unsuccessfully tried to donate the blue wonder to a local ocean institute that "didn't seem too interested," in his find. His girlfriend suggested Stoddard sell the lobster on a classified-ad site. But after several "weird" emails and phone calls, Stoddard pulled the ad.

"I'm kind of a shy guy," he said. "When things get controversial, I kind of go hide. This is what I do for a living; I catch lobsters and sell them. I'm just trying to do the right thing. I thought, 'I just don't need this hassle.' "

The odds of netting a blue lobster? 1 in 2 million.
